    Sample Pastor Emeritus Farewell Tribute

    In Honor of Your Faithful Service

    To Our Beloved Pastor

    We Hereby Name You Pastor Emeritus

    “Let the elders that rule well
    be counted worthy of double honour, 
    especially they who labour in the word and doctrine.”
    Bible Verse -- 1 Timothy 5:17

    1 Timothy 5:17 is the best verse to honor you
    and your work here at Lighthouse Baptist Church.
    We believe the Lord used you and your family
    to accomplish a work only you could have done.
    You led in Truth, battled for Truth, taught the Truth,
    and preached the Truth with love and compassion.
    We thank the Lord for sending you here 
    when we needed you most!
    Now, as the Lord moves you on, may God bless
    and keep you safely in His arms as you continue to
    serve in this last dispensation of time.

    thou good and faithful servant: thou 
    hast been faithful over a few things... 
    enter thou into the joy of thy Lord.”
    - Matthew 25:21

    To Our Pastor’s Wife

    When we thank God for our Pastor,
    we must give Him thanks for two.
    For when your husband came to us,
    God also sent us you.

    Your presence blesses all of us
    who know you from day to day.
    As our Pastor’s wife and much
    more, you have served God
    in a fine and worthy way.

    In recognition of your hard
    work, dedication and service
    to our Lord and Savior.

    “We continually remember before our
    God and Father your work produced
    by faith, your labor prompted by
    love, and your endurance inspired
    by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.”
    - 1 Thessalonians 1:3

    May God always be near you,
    showering his blessings and faith
    on you and your family. 
    May God guide you with His love as
    you walk the path of retirement

    With much Affection, Love, and Gratitude
    from your Church Family

I purchased a crystal plaque for my son's police academy graduation. I was having trouble personalizing on the website so I called customer service. They were great. I ended up emailing multiple times to get it just right. They were patient and very responsive. My order was processed and shipped quickly and I received my plaque as promised in perfect shape. It was packaged very professionally. I highly recommend Crystal Central.

I had a challenge to order two retirement plaques for an upcoming party. So I found this company online and I loved the images that they display. So being a little skeptical I took a chance and order the plaques and within 3 days they were delivered. When I say they were beautiful it was beyond my expectations. Everyone loved the finished products.

Product Description

Symbolizing the house of God, with its peaked roof and sturdy base, the Religious Retirement Tribute is a beautiful way to mark the final chapter of your pastor or deacon’s good work. Shepherding a congregation takes commitment and dedication; make sure your gift to honor that service is worthy.

What really stands out about this piece is the ample plaque space for engraving. Choose an excerpt from a beloved hymn or perhaps a line of poetry. You are also welcome to choose from our sample pastor emeritus farewell tribute bible verses. The example on this piece from First Timothy is a lovely sentiment. “Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honor.” This piece can also be personalized to honor both pastor and his companion in marriage if inscribed with best wishes to retiring pastor and wife wording ideas.
