Pastor Appreciation Month is a special time that congregations set aside each year to honor their pastors and pastoral families for the hard work, sacrificial dedication provided by these special people. 

Focus on the Family began emphasizing Pastor Appreciation Month in the early 1990s, reminding congregations to honor their clergy staff and families throughout the year, but suggesting a special tribute during October. For churches that wanted a one-time celebration, they also chose its second Sunday as Pastor Appreciation Day.
