#thankyourpastor During Pastor Appreciation Month
shared values // on Wednesday September 30, 2015
For many, church is more than a Sunday morning worship service. Church encompasses many benefits for its members, including Sunday School, Bible studies, community fellowship, youth group activities, mission trips, personal support and much more. All these facets of church would not be possible without a Pastor, the leader, and in many cases, main decision maker for a church.
To recognize all they do, October has been designated Pastor Appreciation Month. As a leader in the industry of insuring churches, we at GuideOne are committed to serving religious organizations and pastors, and recognize the importance of taking a moment to say thank you to those holding this vital church leadership role. We want to hear about all the great and important work we know they’re doing. During this month, we want to offer congregations the opportunity to publicly express their thanks and display the great dedication given by pastors, and are hosting a pastor appreciation contest and social media campaign.
Throughout the month of October, individuals, families, church administrators, entire congregations, or any other group that wishes to express their gratitude, are invited to send us their “thank you” to their pastor. This could be in the form of a video, picture, letter, card, or whatever kind of creative content works best for you. By visiting this page, you can learn more about how to submit your content, and each week in October, we will choose one story and make a $500 donation to their ministry - so be sure to send out your messages of thanks all month long. There will be a total of four winning submissions.
See and share what other churches and congregation members are doing to say thanks by checking out social media and searching the campaign hashtag #thankyourpastor. Follow their lead, post your submission to social media and tag it with the same hashtag. We look forward to seeing and hearing about your wonderful pastors!
Every pastor is deserving of thanks and appreciation for all they do. Take time this month to express your gratitude. For more information on the contest, tips on how to host a successful Pastor Appreciation Month event, download thank you cards, or to make a submission, click here.
Please note: The contest and campaign are open to all individuals, and you do not need to be a GuideOne policyholder to participate.
