    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.

    shepherd we thank God for the
    deep compassion, dedication and

    your flock for over 47 years.

    May God bless and keep you 
    safely in His arms as you continue to 
    serve in this last dispensation of time.

    your guidance and your care.

    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

Exceptional Excellence in product quality, shipping and service! A must for the discerning shopper! Crystal Central is a above and beyond company!

This company far exceeded my expectations! It isn’t always easy to trust sites you find online but Crystal Central is an exception and they offer exceptional service! The award I had created is absolutely stunning. The packaging was of high quality and the foam protective materials in the box cradled the crystal award securely. This company will be making awards for my church for years to come! They sent a proof prior to creating the piece that had been centered as well as spell checked! Crystal Central’s shipping was very fast and delivered before the promised date. I couldn’t be happier! Excellence in service and in product production!!

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.
