Lift for Lay Leaders
WHAT IS LIFT? 
October is Pastor Appreciation month and we want to support you as you honor and affirm your pastor. Lift is an initiative designed to give you some simple strategies to encourage, bless and affirm your pastor/s. Some of the latest research indicates that the “downstream” symptoms of ministry stress and challenges are greatly impacting pastors and their families. 

5 SIMPLE STEPS TO LIFT UP GOD'S SERVANT IN YOUR CHURCH:

1. Download the Lift flyer, poster, bulletin insert & certificate for a planning meeting with your deacons, elders, lay leaders Click Here

2. Schedule the appreciation event, service, reception and promote through posters after editing to include ministers and family names plus date of appreciation event. 

3. (Optional) Purchase a VISA gift card at any local retail store, which is good at any of the hundreds of the Christian owned inns and bed and breakfasts who are part of the Christian Hospitality Network. Click Here to find a CHN location
  • Special pastor discounts from 25-50% off, Sun-Thursday nights are typical; A $300-500 gift card would typically cover a multi-night stay giving your ministry couple the blessing of selecting the Bed and Breakfast location that best fits.
4. (Optional) Download the Reboot Spiritual Life and Reboot Marriage App to familiarize yourself and then assist your ministers to do the same; these apps are ideal self-directed resources for their Reboot Retreat.

5. At your Appreciation Event, present the Appreciation Certificate after editing with names. 

Now celebrate, affirm and honor your servants and their families!
