Pastor Appreciation Month

Pastor Appreciation Month

Thank you for your commitment to the local church

During the month of October, Midwestern Seminary wants to recognize pastors who faithfully serve the local church. We know the work of ministry leaders is often challenging, tiresome, and confusing. That’s why we want to provide resources and opportunities for you to be encouraged in your calling and context.

Throughout the month, we’ll be providing resources, announcing giveaways, and releasing content designed to encourage you.

Why I Love Ministry

Are you going through a hard season in ministry? We asked thirteen ministry leaders why they love ministry to encourage fellow ministry leaders in hard seasons. Our hope is that this serves as a reminder that God is good, His church is precious, and that your calling is glorious.
