To Our Pastor’s Wife

When we thank God for our Pastor,
we must give Him thanks for two.
For when your husband came to us,
God also sent us you.

Your presence blesses all of us
who know you from day to day.
As our Pastor’s wife and much
more, you have served God
in a fine and worthy way.

In recognition of your hard
work, dedication and service
to our Lord and Savior.

“We continually remember before our
God and Father your work produced
by faith, your labor prompted by
love, and your endurance inspired
by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Bible Verse - 1 Thessalonians 1:3

May God always be near you,
showering his blessings and faith on you and your family. 
May God guide you with His love as you walk
the path of retirement

With much Affection, Love, and Gratitude from your Church Family

The Pastor Retirement Tribute has a stately grace that’s hard to replicate. This perfect UMC tribute to beloved retired ministers is anchored with a gorgeous, multi-tiered black crystal base and decorated with stalwart pillars, a nod to the ancients. The gleaming gold cross that crowns the plaque gives the entire piece an ethereal glow.

If you’re trying to decide on a sample tribute for a retiring pastor, consider these holy words from the book of Matthew: “thou hast been faithful over a few things… enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.” This would work as a gift for an individual retiring minister or as a thoughtful retirement tribute to pastor and wife. It’s as versatile as it is easy to personalize.

Suitable for: Pastor Retirement Tribute; Minister Retirement Tribute; Retirement Gift for Pastor and Wife
