Why Do The Pew Sitters, Feel The Need To Pay To Attend, The Senior Pastor Birthday Party??


Someone sent me the above flyer, via email, asking what I thought about the idea of charging a fee to attend a pastor birthday celebration?

To be honest, it has become quite fashionable in some circles for churches (parishes/congregations) to have big birthday celebrations for their man/woman of God....then charge the pew sitters a fee to attend. It's not nothing new, and it's not a surprise. Thoughts anyone?

  1. Well it all depends on what's done with the proceeds. It the church is charging to attend these programs and uses the earnings to fund greater more purpose filled programs, then I'm all for it. But if the money raised is placed in an envelope & given to pastor for his bday, then I'm against it. However, I'm all for free will love donations from the church to their pastor for his birthday.

  2. I agree.

    If your going to charge anything, make it clear (all proceeds to be given to . . . .) that it's to benefit a worth while charity or ministry. Clearly this church doesn't feel the need to tell anyone who the money benefits.

    Because I have issues (if you haven't noticed) with handing over my hard earned cash to a pastor who (In Some cases)may already be wealthy.

    With either case, $60 per person is rather steep.
