    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.

    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

The product we purchased is exquisite. It is a crystal gift for a Catholic priest celebrating 50 years of prieshood. It was just celebrated so I have not got a response from him as yet. I'm sure he will enjoy it.

The online web site of Crystal Central was very easy to follow in order to make a purchase. They made sure all spelling and wording was correct and e-mailed me to make sure I was satisfied. A very classy company. I received the product as it was promised.

Thanks for the super product and service.

We ordered an appreciation plaque for a long-time supporter of our non-profit organization and presented it to her at our annual fundraising gala. She knew she would be honored that night but the plaque was a complete surprise! The item arrived quickly, looked absolutely stunning, and was a lot more hefty than predicted (in a great way). Also, thanks for an unperturbed and serene ordering process!

Very beautiful plaque and the order process was quite easy, I was able to put in my custom touches to the item I wanted easily and they quickly came back to me with the official layout for me to approve. The finished item was received within 2 weeks. Very fast and the plaque is beautiful!!! Pictures don't do it justice. The plaque had very vivid etching with sharp colors and it is quite heavy. A very high quality item!

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.
