Churches are encouraged to show their appreciation for clergy and pastoral staff members through a gift, a note of encouragement, or other methods. 

Here are some ideas to show your pastors and clergy members your appreciation:

  1. Throw them a “gift card” shower.
  2. Give clergy families a night out to a local restaurant or gift certificate for an overnight get-away.
  3. Allow members of the congregation to volunteer time serving pastoral leaders by babysitting or helping with yard projects and other home maintenance.


Let the pastor know how God is specifically using them to bless, help, and teach you to follow God.
