Pastor Appreciation Month

Pastor Appreciation

October has long been recognized as Pastor Appreciation Month. The call to honor our church leaders’ contributions can be traced back to St. Paul. In establishing the first Christian churches, he advised the congregation to give “double honor” to the elders of the church who managed the affairs of the church well, “especially those whose work is preaching and teaching” 1 Timothy 5:17. St. Paul further urged Christian communities to acknowledge those “who work hard among you, who care for you in the Lord and who admonish you,” holding these spiritual leaders “in the highest regard in love because of their work,” 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13. for you in the Lord and who admonish you,” holding these spiritual leaders “in the highest regard in love because of their work,” 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13.
