Your Pastor Appreciation Day Celebration Story May Inspire Other Churches

Your pastor appreciation day celebration story is a way to provide creative pastor appreciation ideas to other churches seeking to make their appreciation event special.

Telling us about your successful event is your gift to other churches. View it as a gift that provides pastor encouraging ideas to others who are searching for ways to honor pastors.

Share How Your Pastor Appreciation Day Honored Your Pastor

So go ahead and brag about your church. In the New Testament, Apostle Paul took opportunity to praise specific churches who had demonstrated their love for God and their generosity.

The Lord knows we need to hear good reports about how churches honor their pastor.

Tell Us About Your Pastor Appreciation Day

Here are some suggestions on how to tell your celebration story:


  • Share How you celebrated pastor appreciation, not Who you honored. Although your pastor is wonderful, this is not the place to share about the person. You already did so through your events and ideas. So we want to know how you honored your pastor here.


  • Share ideas that other churches can copy as they honor their pastor. Telling us how great your pastor is does not fulfill the goal of helping each other discover methods to express pastor appreciation.



Because expressing pastor appreciation is a witness of what God's grace is all about, just telling how you honored your pastor paints a word picture of God's grace and mercy.

With that said, we want to hear ideas on how you made Pastor Appreciation Day special.

Scripture Passages Commending Generosity

2 Corinthians 9:1-2 (WEB, World English Bible)  

(1) It is indeed unnecessary for me to write to you concerning the service to the saints, (2) for I know your readiness, of which I boast on your behalf to them of Macedonia, that Achaia has been prepared for a year past. Your zeal has stirred up very many of them.


1 Thessalonians 1:2-8 (WEB, World English Bible)  

(2) We always give thanks to God for all of you, mentioning you in our prayers,(3)  remembering without ceasing your work of faith and labor of love and perseverance of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ, before our God and Father. (4) We know, brothers loved by God, that you are chosen, (5) and that our Good News came to you not in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Spirit, and with much assurance. You know what kind of men we showed ourselves to be among you for your sake. (6) You became imitators of us, and of the Lord, having received the word in much affliction, with joy of the Holy Spirit, (7) so that you became an example to all who believe in Macedonia and in Achaia. (8) For from you the word of the Lord has been declared, not only in Macedonia and Achaia, but also in every place your faith toward God has gone out; so that we need not to say anything.
