Many pastors pull double duty by working outside the church at a secular job and then serving and fulfilling the spiritual obligations of the body of Christ.

Whether a pastor is bi-vocational or not, pasturing is a full time effort.

Studying the word, visiting, funerals, weddings, counseling and taking care of his/her family – pastoring is not easy!

Although your church congregation is able to show appreciation anytime of the year, typically October is Clergy Appreciation Month and you can honor your pastor with a Pat-On-The-Back by calling 800 944 8443 (ext 8 if after hours) share your pastor’s name, church, and how you appreciate them.
