Planning ideas

  • Begin your plans early, since some ideas

can require a substantial amount of time

to develop.

Select a weekend service in October to honor

your entire leadership staff as a congregation.

Select a Clergy appreciation month planning committee to oversee

preparations for this event. Ideally, the

committee should be representative of all

members of the congregation (i.e., age, race,

gender, church activity), but should remain

small enough to be effective and efficient.

Plan the details. Your goal is to express

appreciation to your entire pastoral staff and

their families. List the specific activities you

want to undertake to achieve this goal.

Delegate the responsibilities. Assign the

responsibility for each activity on your list to

one person. This person may need to enlist the

assistance of others in the congregation, but

making one person accountable will improve

your results. Also, be sure to involve those

under the direct ministry of staff pastors, such

as calling on youth group members to help

honor a youth pastor.

Communicate your plans to those in your

congregation and community.

Promote your activities. Carefully determine

the best means to promote your activities and

encourage participation.

Monitor your progress. Be sure that each

responsible person on your planning team

reports his or her progress at regular

intervals. Avoid a surprise resulting from a

last-minute crisis.

Thank the participants. Make sure that each

person who helped plan, prepare, decorate,

serve, lead, entertain, speak, clean up, etc.,

knows how significant his or her contribution

was to the success of your celebration activities.
