USMB is delighted to be a partner in the Bless Your Pastor movement to help Christians and churches everywhere show and share God’s love with their pastors and church staff. October is Pastor Appreciation month, and the Bless Your Pastor initiative is an opportunity for your church to take seriously the call to care for your pastor.
Across America and the world, pastors and their spouses faithfully serve and love the people in their congregations. Yet, 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 the many creative ways to show and share God’s love for their pastors beyond the paycheck.
That’s why the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) created the Bless Your Pastor movement, which is mobilizing Christians and churches everywhere to show and share God’s love for their pastors and church staff even as churches work toward fair compensation.
Please click on the links below to access creative ways to bless your pastor(s). We trust that these free Bless Your Pastor materials will be a wonderful help to you and your church for expressing your appreciation.
