Pastor Retirement Party Ideas

After many hard years of working the day has finally arrived when our pastor is about to retire and to celebrate the occasion you will no doubt be thinking of giving a retirement party for our great pastor.

Organizing a pastor retirement party is a wonderful way to appreciate the years of service of pastor, his wife and his family. We know there will be many tears during the service for the official recognition, so we want to give him a festive party to remember with joy his last Sunday before his departure.

How to let your pastor enjoy the special party? We should think more about the detailed information of party such as:

  1. Retirement party invitation
  2. Venue
  3. Decorations
  4. Activities
