In this Pastor’s Appreciation Letter Category you will find many letters to assist as your church honors the Pastor(s) God has called there. Far too many churches “just get by” in this area but we believe in the importance of encouraging and ministering to the minister! Seen below are only a few of the hundreds of letters available with a Membership here.
(Each church is different, so be sure to modify this as needed).

October is here! It seems almost hard to believe, but this year is going by very quickly and we will soon be sharing Christmas news with you.
Many congregations and denominations have designated the month of October as “Pastor Appreciation Month” and use a portion of that month to honor their Pastor(s) in a variety of different ways.

The Dictionary defines the word “appreciate” in this way; “to be grateful or thankful for.”
The Bible says in 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13, “Now we ask you, brothers, to respect those who work hard among you, who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you. Hold them in the highest regard in love because of their work. Live in peace with each other.”
“Your letters have been a great help to our ministry. You’re right, thinking and thinking of what to say can wear you down... so your letters have been a great help. The letters continue to be a blessing to both Andrae and myself. Thank you for being faithful to helping so many in the ministry."
- Andrae’ and Sandra Crouch
(Our sincere appreciation for the wonderful life of Andrae', and his music before being promoted to Heaven recently. Our loss, Heaven's gain).
"I hardly consider myself ever being at a loss for words, but churchletters.org has been an amazing blessing to me in reaching and connecting with friends, colleagues and ministry leaders. Sometimes I use an entire letter that speaks my heart. Other times I use just a phrase that helps me better articulate a letter I personally composed. I use it in letters, emails, more. It saves me a lot of time in the writing process. Churchletters.org sort of reminds of me of a composer writing a great song for a singer to sing. It's really cool because people love being appreciated and edified. Appreciation always wins over self promotion!"
