We ask you, brothers, to respect those who labor among you and are over you in the Lord and admonish you, and to esteem them very highly in love because of their work (1 Thessalonians 5:12–13a).
Our elected LWML Pastoral Counselors are great blessings! These men enthusiastically give their time and talents to lead us in God’s Word and wisdom as together we serve the Lord. Pastoral Counselors help plan programs and help make sure what is presented proclaims Christ. When challenges arise, they guide us according to God’s Word and will.
Show your appreciation for these servants of the Word with the LWML Tool Kit: Ideas for Pastor Support and Involvement. This kit, found under the “Service” tab and “Church Workers in Mission” at www.lwml.org, contains many ideas to encourage LWML Pastoral Counselors as well as pastors on the local LWML level. These creative suggestions can be used any time of the year. Remember pastors in your prayers, thanking God for their faithful service.
