We want to help you make Pastor Appreciation Month a highlight of your church year.
While this can be most certainly a special time for paying tribute to pastors, a special month set aside for expressing gratitude to spiritual leaders is just a small part of it.
Pastor Appreciation Month is much more than an event on the calendar.
The focus of this positive, faith based website, is to challenge churches to honor and encourage pastors throughout the year.
Finding ways to express genuine appreciation to your pastor is your task. Providing resources for expressing that appreciation is ours.
If a church is to truly honor the pastor, someone needs to step up as the Pastor Appreciation Champion.
I believe that every church needs someone to champion these efforts, a person who will take the lead in promoting appreciation for pastors.
Greetings from San Diego, California. While I was called "Chaplain Paul" by the people I minister to as a now retired health care chaplain, I am once again serving as an associate pastor to the church I attend. All in all I consider myself to be an Internet Chaplain as I promote church health as well as the financial success of pastors.
I also see myself as the Pastor Appreciation Champion of the Internet. By focusing on an Appreciation Theme, my desire is to help churches celebrate Pastor Appreciation Month by providing resources and ideas that prompt churches to pay tribute to their pastor.

I believe that conveying appreciation is the sign of a healthy church and healthy churches want to pay tribute to their pastor through loving acts of gratitude.
A second practical result of honoring pastors is that it creates an atmosphere that encourages a response to the call of God to pastoral ministry.
A positive, healthy church produces those called of God to serve in Christian ministry.
Your church's expression of gratitude for your pastor and his or her ministry efforts can be one of the most effective demonstrations to your community that your church is indeed a loving church.
May the greatest clergy appreciation gift given by your church be the gift of a healthy church, ready to share God's love not only with your pastor but with your community.
