Ten Ways to Support Your Pastor and His Wife

21 May

1. If you see something that needs to be done, do it–without informing him of the need first. If he does not have to worry about who is cleaning the church, staffing the classrooms, or fixing the leaky faucet, he will have more time to pray and study so he can feed you during the service.
2. Take your problems to the Wonderful Counselor instead of making him your counselor. He is carrying the burden of bringing people from sin to salvation. If you pray about what job to take or what house to buy, chances are, the Wonderful Counselor will guide you.
3. Greet him and his wife with, “I appreciate you,” or “I’m praying for you” on Sunday mornings instead of “I need you to…”
4. Send them texts, emails, cards, phone calls just to express gratitude for all that they do.
5. Acknowledge that they work 7 days a week. If you’re too tired to come to church or help out, multiply your exhaustion by 100 and you’ll know how they feel. And they still show up for every service and minister.
6. Be nice to their children and pray for them. PKs aren’t perfect and need just as much prayer as your little ones. Furthermore, they’re sharing their parents with the entire church–so really, they need more prayer than yours.
7. Give them a day off. More so, allow them a vacation every year. Better yet, pay for it.
8. Worship with the Worship Leader and preach with the Preacher.
9. Don’t be pharasaical but do be demonstrative in your worship. If you stare at the ceiling, those ministering do notice. And it’s far from encouraging!
10. Pray for them, fast for them, ask God to bless them, and support them. Do not ever turn against them. They give their all for you; loyalty is a small thing to ask in return.
