For more than two decades, Salem Media Group has hosted hundreds of live and in-person Pastor Appreciation events across the country.
“Salem’s Pastor Appreciation events are a highlight of the year for us and the pastors we serve,” says Salem President of Broadcast David Santrella.
“We love pastors and greatly appreciate the love and care they provide to their congregations, communities and beyond,” adds Christopher Gould, Senior Vice President of National Program Development & Ministry Relations. “However, this year, with the pandemic, that simply has not been possible.”
As a result, Salem Media Group will be encouraging, equipping, and edifying pastors during the entire month of October through its first-ever Virtual Pastor Appreciation Event.
The event features leading voices in ministry including John MacArthur, Chuck Swindoll, Alistair Begg, Tony Evans, Robert Jeffress, Greg Laurie, Allen Jackson, Bryan Chapell, Samuel Rodriguez, and Paul Cannings.
Worship artists performing will include Matthew West, Natalie Grant, for King & Country, Mandisa, and many more.
“[W]e’ve assembled such an amazing array of content which will speak directly to pastors and which can be easily accessed online,” reports Gould.
“COVID-19 may have stopped a lot of activities, but thanks to the creativity of our team, we will still have the opportunity to let our pastors know how much we love and appreciate them,” adds Santrella. “This online series of events has the potential to reach even more pastors through the various channels of digital content delivery.”
Each Thursday throughout October, starting on October 1, Salem Media will release a robust, Gospel-minded presentation created and customized for pastors who register for free at pastors.salemsurround.com. The weekly online event will feature prayer, worship, and a powerful word of encouragement and edification tailored to the pastor’s heart.
“We believe Jesus Christ designed His church and He will build it – and He does that through local pastors in local churches,” says Gould. “We want to come alongside these pastors and ministry leaders to encourage them as they serve God faithfully and lead the church.”
