Appreciating Our Pastors

October is Pastor’s Appreciation Month, so it’s an opportunity to celebrate our wonderful pastors at Lakeview Wesleyan Church. Let us pray for them the Apostle Paul’s words from Philippians 1:3-5: “Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. I always pray for you, and I make my requests with a heart full of joy because you have been my partners in spreading the Good News about Christ from the time you first heard it until now.”

Here is an acrostic poem to pay tribute to our pastoral team at Lakeview Wesleyan Church.   

Persistent in sharing the love of Jesus Christ with everyone–

Adamant about making disciples for Christ and being in community with them–

Serving Marion, the nation, and the world; one person at a time–

Taking the message of the Gospel to the ends of the earth–

Obeying God, no matter what the task–

Rebuking the works of the enemy in Jesus’ name.    

Happy Pastors Month to Pastor Tim and the entire Lakeview Wesleyan Pastoral Team!  You are loved!

Dr. Mary Alice Trent, Professor of English, Indiana Wesleyan University
