Home Office Furniture Is A Practical Gift Idea
Office furniture is an appropriate and practical pastor appreciation gift idea, when designing a home office or pastor's study.
Most pastors have a home office that serves as their ministry center of activity. Even if there is a church office that includes a pastor's study area, the pastor's home office is often where much of the pastor's reading and sermon preparation takes place.
The reason for giving quality office furniture as a pastor appreciation gift is that it says to your pastor "We want to provide quality office furniture because we appreciate your preaching ministry".
Pastors often spend 15 to 20 hours preparing a sermon and so, in giving a gift of high quality office furniture, you will provide an efficient and effective place to study and prepare sermons. Besides, maybe giving high quality home office furniture will translate into high quality sermons!
Many pastors have used old kitchen tables and broken down kitchen chairs as their office furniture in the early years of their preaching ministry. Cast off desks and seen better days office chairs can certainly meet the basic needs of the pastor in his or her sermon preparation and ministry planning activities. Perhaps it is your way of keeping the pastor humble.
We all know that God's inspiration is not dependent upon beautiful furniture. God can certainly speak to his servant in even the humblest settings and has done so throughout the ages as sermons were prepared in dungeons and New Testament Books were penned from prison cells.
However, in these days, hand me down furniture or used discount office furniture often creates an atmosphere of second best, of low expectation, and sends a message to the pastor that his or her ministry efforts are unimportant.
To create an atmosphere of professionalism for your pastor, the office furniture plan that includes professional quality office furniture is a wise gift giving choice.
For a pastor appreciation gift idea that will convey confidence and appreciation, consider upgrading your pastor's home office.
