The second Sunday of October, Pastor Appreciation Day, however, other churches may celebrate the day on a different day. Sometimes known as Clergy Appreciation Day. This day was started in 1992 by Hallmark Cards. Some people call it Pastors Appreciation Day.

Pastor Jimmy Inman
I would like to thank my current pastor Jimmy Inman and the other pastors at True Life Church in Jefferson City, TN. This also includes Preston Ford, Rusty Arwood, and Roger Griffith.
Pastor Bob Neal
I would love to special thanks to all the past pastors in my life including Bob Neal at Piedmont Baptist Church in Dandridge, TN.
Pastor Justin Breeden
In addition, I would love to also give a special appreciation to Justin Breeden.
Plus all other pastors who are out there that are working for the Lord! Thank you all!
We shouldn’t just set one month or one day aside for Pastor Appreciation, but we should appreciate our pastor on a daily basis. God appointed these men as overseers of His church to help lead His people, you as a body of the church.

Heather of SimplySpokn did a similar blog post, How to Make your Pastor Feel Unappreciated
Which makes some good points. Points that we as a member of the body of a church seem to always do. We always seem to do those, and we don’t realize doing them, makes our pastor feel unappreciated.

I enjoy listening to nothing but Christian Music. Camping and hiking is something that I enjoy. I guess that is because I am an Eagle Scout. Blogging is something I enjoy doing too. I have been blogging since 2004. However, I have been blogging on Courageous Christian Father since 2012. I am married with 1 daughter and 2 step-sons and a step daughter.
