In the U.S., October is “Pastor Appreciation Month.” It was established in 1992 to uplift and encourage pastors, missionaries and religious workers. For more information, and a tribute to pastors, click here.
In GCI, our pastoral leaders hold various titles (representing different types of pastoral assignments): lead pastors, associate pastors, assistant pastors, pastoral team members, and fellowship group facilitators. We highly value and appreciate all these men and women who give of their time, talent and treasure in remarkable, self-sacrificing ways. To them we say, we appreciate and thank you!
We encourage our congregations to thank their pastoral leader(s). For ideas, click here. In the U.S., if you would like to give a monetary gift please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org .
