Did you know that 80% of seminary and Bible school graduates who enter the ministry will leave the ministry within the first five years? That is a shocking and upsetting number. But we can help our pastor's stay positive and give them the appreciation they need and deserve to keep them ministering to us.We have two exciting ways for you to encourage your pastor during this Pastor Appreciation Month:

Also developed over the years were Rancho Jireh Foster Homes, and Project Independence. Collectively these three programs form Thessalonika Family Services, an incorporated 501©(3) nonprofit agency.
Guests will be able to see 18 of Ron DiCianni's signature pieces up close and personal, as well as enjoy featured music artist Jillian Calkins. Sponsorships and VIP Tables are available for this event.

We all know that God is there, but do you know that He's listening to you, too? According to His Word, there are two things God will NEVER do:
"...because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.'"
Hebrews 13:5 NIV
That's right, God will never leave us and He will never forsake us. So why is it that we don't do as God asks and put our troubles up to Him to resolve?
In the midst of our busy lives we forget one thing – prayer. Prayer is a direct line to God. No operators. No long distance fees. No hold time. Direct.
We take the privilege of prayer for granted more than anything. Let's all take a few minutes each day to talk to our Lord and tell Him how we are. He's ready and listening.
