Bless Your Pastor
Here are some ideas on blessing your pastor. The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) “Bless Your Pastor Campaign” is funded by a grant from the Lilly Endowment. Perhaps your district and/or church would like information about this:
- Pastor Appreciation Month – Easy as 1-2-3
The NAE has put together a Bless Your Pastor program for churches in the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico.
Step 1: Distribute the Bless Your Pastor list within your congregation.
Step 2: Receive a pastor appreciation offering.
Step 3: Complete an online form for your pastor to receive a $250 Amazon gift card from the NAE.
Go to BessYourPastor.org for all the details and resources (also available in Spanish).

Here is an excerpt from the “Bless Your Pastor” initiative:
Across America and the world, pastors and their spouses faithfully serve and love the people in their congregations. Yet, our research shows that most pastor families face significant financial challenges.
The financial stress that many pastors face can be greatly alleviated when church leadership teams and families discover there are many creative ways to show and share God’s love for their pastors beyond the paycheck.
The Bless Your Pastor initiative is an opportunity for your church to take seriously the call to care for your pastor.
