PASTOR APPRECIATION LETTERS

These Pastor Appreciation Letters are a great way for Churches to bless those who are serving the Lord in the calling of Pastor.  The Bible encourages us to “give honor where honor is due”, and we believe this is both a wonderful thing to do, but also comes with great blessing for church leadership.

These letters are written by a Pastor with over 35 years of ministry experience, they will be a great addition to ministry efforts!

Whether it’s an invitation to a Pastor Appreciation Service or a letter asking for cards and notes for an appreciation book, or even a letter of invitation to a Pastor’s retirement banquet, you are sure to find letters you can easily modify and use!

Take some time to scroll through the letter titles you see below.  For a paragraph “snippet” just click the plus symbol next to the title, and to see the full letter text be sure to become a member!

This is a speech for Pastors Appreciation Day.  Of course, it is always recommended to modify this to your own situation, these words will apply to the vast majority of Pastors, and it would be a speech that would bring honor and dignity to your Pastor.  You may also modify it to use as a letter to him/her as well.
