The Bless Your Pastor movement empowers congregations to think creatively about how to care for their pastors. We hope the movement creates an outpouring of generosity in our communities for those who faithfully lead and teach the Word of God.

Bless Your Pastor is a national campaign built on a biblical foundation.
1 Thessalonians 5:12 instructs believers to show our deep appreciation for those who cherish us and diligently work as ministers among us. Pastors are deserving of intentional care, often working 50-60 hours per week to support their congregations. When churches embark on the Bless Your Pastor journey to care for their leaders, a movement of generosity and abundance will be unleashed through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Galatians 6:6 teaches believers to share all good things provided by God with their instructors. By financially and emotionally supporting shepherds of the faith, believers are rewarded with renewed hearts, minds and spirits. As a result, entire communities become more generous and Christ-like.
The Bless Your Pastor movement seeks to empower congregations to love and care for their pastors and church staff. Our mission is propelled by a commitment to relieve some of the financial and emotional pressures that pastors feel as they serve their churches.
Bless Your Pastor has established a committed and passionate team that share a single-minded vision to encourage, equip and empower believers to care for their pastors.
