What is this all about?

Across America and the world, pastors and their spouses faithfully serve and love the people in their congregations. Yet, our research shows that most pastor families face significant financial challenges.

The financial stress that many pastors face can be greatly alleviated when church leadership teams and families discover there are many creative ways to show and share God’s love for their pastors beyond the paycheck.

The Bless Your Pastor initiative is an opportunity for your church to take seriously the call to care for your pastor.

“The one who receives instruction in the Word should share all good things with their instructor.”

Galatians 6:6
