Send your pastor out to dinner

19 February 2018 , 2018 Jan - Feb By Karen Stiller

I am married to a minister. It is a rich and wonderful life, full of surprises and adventure and challenges. Yes, yes indeed, there are many built-in rewards and joy in clergy life. That is all true. But you know what would be really nice? A free dinner!! In a nice restaurant!!

Nominate your pastor for a dinner out. It’s easy!

In honour of all the hardworking pastors out there, Faith Today, Canada’s Christian magazine, is running a fun little contest to cheer us all up in these last weeks (months?) of winter in Canada. To go along with our upcoming March/April cover story  — about the theology of food and the great ministry we can do with that fundamental part of our lives — we are inviting Canadian congregations from coast to coast to submit their minister’s name for a draw, and tell us why you appreciate them so much. We will randomly select a name from every province and territory, and the winning pastor will receive a $50 gift card to head out to dinner. We will give every pastor nominated a social media salute, which is not quite the same as a sizzling steak, but it could cheer up a person on a grey day.

So, join in the fun. It costs you nothing but the time to send us an email to socialmedi[email protected] by March 31. Tell us what the ministry of your pastor means to you and your community and we will enter their name into our draw.

Thanks! And please spread the word.
