Did you know October is Clergy Appreciation month? This month is a time to  recognize ministers, pastors and priests serving communities in the United States.

There are many ways to honor clergy. Some congregations take up a special offering to bless their pastors.  Others bless leaders with meals, gifts, gift cards, acts of service and even paid vacations. Here are some ways for individuals to show appreciation. 

  • Pray for your clergy – Ask God to bless them, their work and their families; for provision for all needs and a special something personally meaningful just for them.
  • Verbally thank them – Tell them personally how much you appreciate what they do for you and the congregation. Let them overhear you telling other people about their good character as well.
  • Volunteer to help them and ministries– churches offer more opportunities for volunteering than just about anywhere. You can even personally offer a gift of time to do something specific.
  • Write a note of thanksgiving – Thank your minister for being an excellent leader, for his or her compassion or even something specific the person did to bless others that you personally witnessed or heard about.
  • Ask – Find out where you and your talents can help. Some clergy don’t delegate enough or people don't know of specific needs, forcing ministers to take on all the burdens upon themselves.

If no one at your church has yet mentioned anything about showing appreciation for Clergy Appreciation Day, why not be the person to initiate it? Celebrate your clergy and recognize them for their leadership, compassion, stewardship, and faith.

Hallmark Cards first started Clergy Appreciation National Day of Honor in 1992.

Your title certainly caught my attention and I did not know it was clergy appreciation month but I am definitely grateful for those that choose to be clergy members.
