Hi David, This is a lovely article. As a pastor’s wife I appreciate the time and thought that you put into this. I especially like:

Give Him a Surprise Getaway
Buy Him a New Suit

But my favorite is Serve in the Church. The name is Selah Mountain Baptist “Church” …. not Selah Mountain Baptist “Pastor”. Thanks for another great article

Well done sir. I appreciate your writing this as Pam said. My wife, being a pastor’s wife, would say that anything you do to the pastor you do to his wife and children. I would say that my wife is a vital and integral part of my pastorate and she is in the ministry with me, not just beside me. Thank you. Loved the “Serve in the Church” too. That’s a huge one. I thank God for you David and this article, at the risk of being a bit selfish for saying so.

I hope many other church members will read this and implement some of these ideas.

Thanks for your comments.

Iam impressed by reading your article David. I will be happy if this article can be seen by all Christians because it reveals how pastors should be appreciated.

Dear All in Christ,
Our congregation as recently shifted to the new place since the old was to be demolished to extension by the road way authorities.
We as a congregation gifted Table fans-2, (since the church building has low terrace roof) Ceiling fan-1, Petrol generator convert-able to kerosene too, Mats, PA System (public address system), Chairs, Mosquito repellent cans-2, Insect killer solution, and a wall clock.

My wife and I have been attending our church as visitors for about 7 months now. I have received a note from the Pastor saying how much he appreciates us and how we encourage him. I have tried to figure this out but not exactly know why. I have told him over and over that we pray for him and his family on a daily basis. Also we have always occupied a pew almost to the front of the church and many Sunday’s we are by ourselves. Does this encourage a Pastor I thought to myself, maybe it does. Anyway I hope others will find ways to encourage him also. Thank you.

Sometimes a word and a comment is all you need. I used to work as a janitor and, while I was almost always ignored, when someone would give me a smile or say thank you, it totally made my day. 🙂

Now I’m a designer and, drawing on that experience, I started an Etsy shop dedicated to saying thank you.

I feel strongly that a Pastor’s work is so important that the church budget should reflect not only meeting his needs but to be sure you exceed his needs especially if he has a good size family. Can we be sensitive in the church enough to know that many Pastor’s can not afford a good suit and even if they could he would spend it on his family. So if the church gives in this way then by a gift card at a good men’s store. If I were responsible in part for forming a church budget I would insist on a line item for Pastor’s clothing and give a specific allowance for it. Be generous to your Pastor, give him a gift card for a dinner out with his family or for just him and his wife. I only wish that more members were sensitive to these kinds of things.

I appreciate my pastor for his open love for all members.
