Pastor Retirement Appreciation Wording (#561-1)

To Our Pastor

You have served the Lord and our Church
with gladness – tirelessly, faithfully, and
with great compassion for your flock.

You have planted seeds of hope & love
in our lives and truly made a difference.
You have shown hospitality to all and
given encouragement to many. 

Now, as the story which is your life
opens to its next chapter, May the God
of Grace richly bless and watch over you,
May the God of Peace grant you peace always
and May the God of Abundant Joy shower you daily. 

“‘I know what I am planning for you,’ 
says the Lord. ‘I have plans to
give you hope and a good future.’” 
~ Jeremiah 29:11

Happy Pastoral Anniversary & Retirement

Send your appreciation and best wishes to retiring priest with the scripture from the book of Jeremiah, a perfect way to say farewell to your retiring priest who has devoted so much of his life serving the God.

Thank You Wordings for Retiring Priests (#561-2)

To Our Pastor

With Great Affection and Gratitude
From Your Church Family

People say one person can’t
make a difference in the world...
but We know that isn’t true,
because We’ve seen the 
difference you make in the lives 
of those around you. 

Faith is making
yesterday a stepping stone,
today a new beginning,
tomorrow a limitless possibility.
Thank you for your 58 years of
outstanding and exemplary service. 

May your paths be filled with simple 
Joys and Blessings without end.

Thank you for the difference you’ve made in the lives
of so many as Pastor, Teacher and Friend


Ministry Leadership Recognition Messages (#561-3)

To Our Pastor

For many years you have
proven time and time again
the true meaning of a Pastor.

You have rejoiced with us 
in times of great happiness.
You have stood with us 
in times of trials.
You gently corrected us 
when we had strayed from the path.
You have wrapped your arms  around us
in times of great sorrow.
You were there to lead us 
during the darkest parts of our journey.
You have ministered to our souls 
and gave us encouragement to press on.

Thank you for the dedication 
you have shown to the Lord and 
to Our Congregation through all these years.

Thank You For many Years Of True Leadership

DIY Awards is a wonderful website and user-friendly so you can create a personalized crystal award. Our church congregation wanted to share our thanks to our retiring pastor in a way that he could see the plaque each day at his home. He loved it!!!!!! We couldn't have selected a more perfect gift. The finished product was so stunning it almost took my breath away. Don't hesitate using DIY Awards as the staff/customer service is outstanding and very helpful. They are with you every step of the way if needed. TOTALLY SATISFIED!!!!!

I purchased a retirement crystal bible plaque/award for our retiring pastor. DIY Awards was so easy to deal with customer service for special requests and changes. It was presented to our pastor today during the service. His reaction was, "WOW"! If you have any qualms about ordering online, please don't hesitate using DIY Awards. The final product is just stunning! My experience with them was outstanding.
