October 2 is Pastor Appreciation Day!

October 2 is Pastor Appreciation Day—a time for congregations within the IPHC to formally recognize the work of their spiritual leaders.

2016’s Pastor Appreciation theme is based on First Corinthians 9:19, “I have made myself a servant to all that I might win the more” (ESV).

The lives of pastors are composed of three major commitments. They are the hub—the center—of their call. To see a diagram and download a sermon for Pastor Appreciation day, click here

Please make a special effort to honor your pastors on October 2, 2016.

“Let the elders who rule well be counted worthy of double honor, especially those
who labor in the word and doctrine (1 Timothy 5:17 NKJV).”
