Ways to Bless your Pastor
|" HOW TO KEEP A HAPPY PASTOR|
1) To address him as Pastor wherever and whenever you see him! That'll remind him and all near him of his position as a messenger of God. Treat him with respect.
2) Find a chance to express your appreciation to him, be it his look/sermon/whatever.
3) Come to church and pay attention to his sermon; don't sleep during the sermon! What could hurt a man of God more than choosing not to fill the church that God has given him to share his knowledge and love with.
4) Pray for one another. If one member of the body of Christ is in pain, then the whole body will suffer. A stubbed toe, will cause the whole body to limp everywhere it goes, even into the presence of God. To enable the Holy Ghost to bless you through your Pastor, to his fullest ability, he will need to present a healthy body before God's throne. Seek to help and love one another and that means everyone not just the ones you know, or the ones you like. Don't complain about one another or hurt each other, don't expose the others sins to the world, but pray for them and help them overcome them. Hurting someone else only hurts the body that you are in! We have to help bear the responsibility for one another, so that the Pastor does not have to carry the whole burden. Treat him well and free him from hassles in church, so he can concentrate on receiving God's word and feeding the congregation.
|" A pastor's personal accomplishment may well be the weekly sermon he prepares meticulously. At least every now and then, it would motivate the pastor if we could send a brief email to him/her or text message on his/her cellphone to express our appreciation for the sermon after the service. This will mean a lot to the pastor, and will let him know that his work is meeting the church direction or purpose. "|
|" I helped my pastor move into his new house. His clothes were on wire hangers, so I purchased wooden hanger with beautiful metallic hooks on them and presented them to my pastor after one of our community events. I profess my love to them and for them at every opportunity. In a graduation card, in a birthday card, during intercessory prayer, during conversation with my prayer partner and always in my mind and heart. Attend every service (that I am able to attend) and finally do whatever they say, even if it is highly inconvenient such as dressing less casual during the week when serving as an usher, for example.|
Pay tithes faithfully and make myself accountable for my whereabouts to them i.e. when I am leaving town, I tell them and for how long so they never have to wonder. "

5) treat him well and free him from hassles in church, so he can concerntrating in receiving god's word and feed to congregation.
6) Do not speak evil against him, even if he is not doing right thing, cause the more you speak evil against him, devil will be more than happy to agree with you and make your evil report come to pass.
7) if you don't like your pastor, instead of complaint about him all the time, leave the church. Find another church where you can receive message form the pulpit.
I am very blessed to have very anointed pastors/leaders in my church, may the Lord continue to bless them, favour them and feed them in all ways. More and more revelation about out Lord Jesus Christ be reveal to them, that they may be shielded in all ways, that no poison darts can come against them.
|" i always at least remember them with a verbal thank you, and usually send a card. |
thanks for asking.
|" Here are a few ideas that I wish to share with you, that may have to be applied with discernment depending on local customs & habits:|
- Publicly recognise the pastor AND his wife AND children during a service (as a surprise of course) - standing ovation, flowers etc
- Treat your pastor and spouse to a special meal (BBQ, home setting, restaurant)
- Replace, repair, buy that "rickety" item (car, TV, stereo, computer, golf set...) that was either faulty or damaged
- Treat them to a week-end in a place they had been longing to go to for years, yet had to postpone due to time or financial constraints
- Buy him (them) a holiday
- Invite them along for a - say fishing, hiking, diving trip.
- Offer them a special book (collection), reference library he (they) were looking for ...
There are of course many more.
Hope this has been helpful

|" One year at Word of Victory Outreach Center in Canton, TX the senior aged ladies prepared and served a special 5 course dinner for our pastors, Mike and Janet Burns, and our Youth Ministers and Praise and Worship Leaders. A local Bed & Breakfast, the Victorian Rose, offered us the facilities to honor our leaders with a special gathering hour and candlelight dinner. We selected the menu and each one of us prepared a dish. With food specially prepared and served on fine china, and beverages in sparkling crystal, the flowers and candlelight just added to the ambiance. Since most of our pastors and leaders live busy hectic lives, it meant so much to them that we had selected a quiet secluded place for them to dine in luxury for a few hours. Since we are servants, we did just that, we served and made ourselves as invisible as possible like courteous waitstaff do so the guests can converse and enjoy themselves. With dessert we served specialty coffee and tea. It was wonderful to watch each one relax, taking time to enjoy the food in front of them, while conversing and laughing. We were blessed too--preparing, serving, cleaning up, and chatting with each other--as the spirit filled us with joy as we watched our pastors and leaders relax and enjoy a special evening together!|
