Pastor Anniversary Scriptures and Themes
Creating a pastor anniversary The topic can be intimidating, overwhelming, and sometimes over-thought. Selecting a topic for your pastor is nothing more than creating a prayer based on the direction or progression of your ministry. The subject must also have some kind of deep meaning in some cases, with an underlying intelligent thought.
First, let’s discuss where to get theme ideas that will help you create your pastor’s anniversary theme. First of all, I always look in the Holy Bible, as there are countless examples of topics for a pastor. The idea is to choose a scripture that has a word of encouragement and direction from God. Not all scriptures are the same, and not all scriptures convey the message that is needed to convey the general idea of the message.
Here is a list of scriptures that speak directly about honoring your pastor:
- Jeremiah 3:15– And I will give you shepherds according to my heart, who will feed you with knowledge and understanding.
- Ephesians 4:11– And gave to some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers; For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edification of the body of Christ.
- I Thessalonians 5: 12-13– And we beseech you, brothers, that you know those who work among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you; And esteem them very much in love for the sake of their work. And be at peace among yourselves.
- I Timothy 5:17– That the elders who govern well be considered worthy of double honor, especially those who work in word and doctrine.
- Hebrews 13:17– Obey those who govern you and submit to yourselves, because they watch over your souls, as those who must give an account, so that they do so with joy and not with pain: because that does not benefit you.
