Appreciation poem for Pastor and Wife Anniversary

To Our Pastor

Apostle you are..
A man who teaches the word of God,
the word of truth that gives the people power…
the power of love….the love of God!
A man who not only hugs the sheep, but
touches the heart of his flock.
.A man whose singing brings light into dark places,
and pierces the heart into conviction.
A man whose smile actually means “I love you,”
A man whose eyes say “I’m praying for you”
A man whose lessons from the pulpit make you jump up
and say I can take on the world, bring it on!
A man we appreciate and love,
and who we are proud to call “our own!”

To Our Pastor' Wife

The wife of a Pastor is no ordinary role,
it’s not for the jealous nor timid soul.
So I take this moment without further ado,
to say Co-Pastor, we celebrate you.
Though demands are never ending
and recognitions are few,
your smiles are ever present,
never stale, each one new.
You’re an example to the sister
and encourager to the brother,
while obeying Christ’s command
that we serve one another.
You’re gloriously appreciated
as an enhancer of life,
You’re not just a Queen...You’re a Pastor’s Wife.

With Love, Honor and Appreciation, Your
Greater Praise Temple Ministries Family
