Elisabeth and I come from a long line of pastoral families… parents, grandparents, brothers, uncles, and cousins all serving the local church with their families in ministry. This heritage is a cherished part of our story with many chapters telling of the adventure that is ministry life… highest mountains and deepest valleys. Join us in honoring the pastors in your life. Celebrate them in tangible and intangible ways throughout the month of October! Check out http://www.thrivingpastor.org to discover how you can honor their service for Christ and your local church. Attached is a Clergy Appreciation Planning Guide you can use in your planning. CAM Guide_2012. It isn’t too late to get the ball rolling and let the pastors and their families in your life know how much you appreciate them!
