FOSTERING HEALTHY RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN CONGREGATIONS AND THEIR PASTORS
It is a forgone conclusion that pastors are to provide care for the people in their church. Clergy members all across the globe guard, feed, nurture and lead their congregants to develop spiritually healthy lives that positively affect their communities for Christ. This is their God-given responsibility (Hebrews 13), and most of them take the spiritual well-being of the flock they tend very seriously. Ministers invest mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
What is often overlooked, is that for the relationship between a pastor and his/her congregation to be healthy, there must exist a balance of giving and receiving from each to the other. The tendency of many churchgoers is only to receive, which creates an unhealthy drain on the pastor. Care for Pastors Sunday provides a wonderful platform for churchgoers to give back to their pastors!
