Pastor Appreciation Month Ideas

Helium Balloon Prayers Reaching Heaven

Make a list of things to pray for concerning your Pastor(s) and Family(s) such as:

  • Blessing your Pastor & Family
  • Pastor’s Strength
  • Pastor’s Spouse’s Strength
  • Each of their Names Mentioned
  • Wisdom & Spiritual Blessings
  • Perfect Health Blessings
  • Financial Blessings

These are just a few prayers you might think about along with your personal prayers. Place each of these prayers on a strip of paper and tie it to a helium balloon. Make sure they are helium balloons so they will rise toward the sky when released.

Pastor Appreciation Special Church Service

Gather the congregation outside and give each person a balloon with a prayer tied on it. Have each person read the prayer request attached to their balloon.
With every person together, let the balloons go and each person prays for the request tied to their balloon.

The Pastor and congregation will actually see how many prayers are reaching Heaven for him and his family. Make sure that your Pastor gets a list of each prayer request that was written on each balloon. This is a very unique way to show appreciation to your Pastor and his family on this very special occasion.

PowerPoint Presentation DVD for Pastor and Family

If you have someone in your church that has the skills and programs on their computer as so many do in this day and time and they know how to put together a PowerPoint Presentation DVD with pictures of their Pastor and family throughout the years at the events, outings and services as being Pastor have them create a DVD presentation.

This is a very loving way to show appreciation to your Pastor and family. After all, digital cameras make this task easier along with the software programs that many of us already have on our computers. You can have music playing during the presentation or someone could be reading Pastor Appreciation Poems.

If you have a special sign language group such as we do in our church (“God Speaking” Group) you can have them signing to the Pastor’s favorite songs as the pictures are being displayed on the screen. We did this on the first day of
our Youth Camp last year to celebrate 10 Years of Front Lines Youth Camp.

Our presentation showed pictures of every year of Front Lines Youth Camp and we picked the best choir worship song at out each year and as they were showing pictures of that year our “God Speaking” sign language group was signing to the worship songs. He cried throughout the entire presentation, it was very special to our Pastors and the entire church. Be sure to burn a copy of the Pastor Appreciation DVD Presentation for your Pastor and family. Also, burn copies of the DVD off for the church on a “donation basis only” for another way to give to your Pastor as a Love Offering for him and his family.

Try and get the donations before the Pastor Appreciation Special Service so you can give him the Love Offering sometime during the church service.
You can also do this same idea for your Youth Ministers, etc. at a different time or you might want to do it at the same time, that’s up to you and your church of course. Let your youth get involved with putting this presentation together to show their appreciation for their Youth Minister.

Visitor Testimonials

*I wanted to take a minute (during my email time slot) to thank you for all this work you do and share with the small church community. You and your staff (if you have some) are very much a blessing. Thank you, Elizabeth - PA - U.S.
*Terressa! I received the discs today!! A few years back I was at a small church that used your software and it was perfect for their volunteers to use. The church I am at now has 2 volunteer secretaries and one found your product and I gushed!!! Her first request is a directory so this will be perfect. God Bless you for creating such a great system (Shepherdbase). Regards - Tonya - OK - U.S.
*This is the 1st time I've visited your website and I just wanted to say "thank you". I go to a very small Christian Church and thanks to you, the forms you have for a children's ministry will keep me from having to "reinvent the wheel" and I am very grateful to you. We are a very small church (about 40 regular attendees) and 90% of those are over 65. We just had a young couple offer to help us get a Youth Group. Thanks to you, we won't have to do to much to get this off and running for the holiday season. Thanks again! - Kentucky - U.S.
*I do the tithes at the end of the year for a very small outreach in the city of Detroit. They had been paying thousands of dollars every several years trying to keep a database of their donors.

I searched last year for something less costly for them and came across your database (Shepherdbase). It is a blessing and so appreciated. Thank you for all your hard work and thank you for Giving To The Lord. Peacemakers Int. in Detroit on Chene street is another ministry you have blessed. - Charlene - U.S. *Disclaimer

*This website has been very useful for my ministries with Hospice, the Hospital and Human Services. I recommend this website to any church, ministry or agency that is supporting or ministering to people. God Bless You - Chaplain Dave - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Just wanted to let you know how helpful your resources are. We are a small church and have missed out on doing a lot of things. We ordered your Church Forms on CD and are just pleased. Keep up the good work of providing resources for Churches. - Lillian - U.S. *Disclaimer

*I am a minister of the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and have been tremendously blessed to access you and pray that God the Almighty favor you in what you do. You have enabled me to access ready-designed church documents. Thanks and God Bless You Terressa. - Bro. Mike - Kenya, Africa *Disclaimer

*Thank You! You're heart for giving free resources and making things so affordable is truly a blessing. My Pastor always says: "What you make happen for someone else, God will make happen for you!" May God richly bless you and your ministry to us and so many others, enlarge your territory and bring financial blessings with good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over!!! 10,000 Blessings! Leeanna - U.S. *Disclaimer

*Thanks for making this site available. I took over as secretary of our small church a few months ago, and I am having to create a lot of forms. This site is a blessing! - Vicki - U.S. *Disclaimer

*After years of frustration and being overcharged for Church Management software, I came across "Shepherbase" and all my problems were solved. *Disclaimer

This database:
  • 1. Tracks members and visitors
  • 2. Tracks contributions
  • 3. Organizes by both individual AND family
  • 4. Creates professional letters, relevant to church ministry
  • 5. Is easy to use
  • 6. Costs a mere fraction of other databases offering similar features. *Disclaimer
  • 7. So much more.

I am very thankful for this product and I recommend it to anybody wanting to exit the cost and complexity rat race of Church databases.
Thank you Shepherdbase!
