You’ve shared the list of 50 Creative Ways to Bless Your Pastor with your church and taken up an appreciation offering. Now it’s the really easy part!
Celebrate your pastor (or pastor and staff) publicly in one or more of the following ways:
Collect cards/notes (optional: gifts cards can be included); honor and pray for them in the church
service; plan an appreciation meal; make an appreciation slide show; ask children draw pictures or write
notes; and/or encourage people to post a thank you on social media about why they love their pastor.
$200 for your Senior Pastor, and/or vacation and retreat opportunities. For first-time participating churches that complete all 3 steps and collect an appreciation offering of $100 or more, we will email your senior pastor a grant-funded $200 Amazon gift card! For all participating churches, your pastor will be given access to free and discounted retreat and vacation opportunities. Fill out the form to receive these gifts: BlessYourPastor.org/gifts.
