Pastor Appreciation Month (October) is a great opportunity for individuals and the church, as a whole, to show love and appreciation for our pastors. Pastors are ordinary human beings, with limited energy, time, and strength. They have down days and challenges to their faith, just as we all do. God tell us that the elders who direct the affairs of the church well are worthy of double honor (1 Timothy 5:17), and he asks us to honor those leaders who work so hard for all of us.
Perhaps you can send a card, meal, gift/gift card as a thank you. You can pray for our pastors on a daily basis. There are many ways to show that you love and appreciate our staff. Thank you for being part of Revive Church.
Come together with women from across the country and all walks of life for ABUNDANCE, a special two-day event to explore the sufficiency and generosity of Christ. Authors and teachers Lisa Harper, Angela Thomas-Pharr, Kelly Minter, Jefferson Bethke and TC Stallings along with Christian recording artists Christy Nockels and Natalie Grant, will explore and illustrate how embracing God's abundance transforms every area of our daily lives.
Because at ABUNDANCE, we believe that, in Him, little is much, less is more, hardship is blessing, hurt is healed, and wrong is made right. We believe His love multiplies and His mercy is boundless. We know His grace is gratuitous and His forgiveness is excessive. We trust His kindness is generous and His faithfulness overflows. And we remember, in Him our lives can be abundant.
