I want to take this special opportunity during Clergy Appreciation Month to express my appreciation to you and your family for the hard work, sacrificial dedication and multiple blessings you provide to Cornerstone Conference and the local church. Giving honor, affirmation and prayer support of our spiritual leaders is a priority throughout the entire year and certainly deserves our focused attention especially during this special month.
Whether you are a missionary, evangelist, staff pastor or senior pastor (active or retired) – your ministry is valuable to the body of Christ and should be recognized as such. Scripture gives the foundation for this. Paul told Timothy that “The elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor, especially those whose work is preaching and teaching” (1 Timothy 5:17). One of our core values reflects how important your role is in Cornerstone:
We believe that identifying and equipping Christ-honoring, gospel-centered leaders is critical for local and conference ministry, and is ultimately characterized by a loving and willing heart of obedience.
On behalf of our Executive Council, I would like to thank you for your ministry, leadership and service to the Cornerstone Conference IPHC family. We are here for you! If there is anything I can do for you, please do not hesitate to call on me. You can reach me anytime by phone or email. Please note my cell number is 828-228-1959.
