Clergy House-Warming Gifts

If you are in need of some house-warming gift ideas for a clergy type person, there is no shortage of possibilities.

What clergy person doesn't need a John 3:16 pillow for their living room couch?

Or a nativity clock on top of the mantle?

How about a leather scripture chair? 

You can't have enough religious mugs for all of that cupboard space.

Here's a practical way of reminding your pastor to pray whenever they pull off a book from their shelf.

And what clergy home would be complete without a door mat that has a mini-sermon on it?

While all of these gifts are great ideas, don't forget just how much clergy like to make a religious statement at the end of their driveway.

On the other hand, a John Wesley bobble head would like nice on the desk in their study.

Maybe, I'll just stick with a more practical gift like fruit and bottles of water. Of course, I'll need to get labels for the water bottles that say, "Jesus is the Living Water" and a welcome to your new home card that includes the "fruit of the Spirit" scripture passage. 

You just can't go wrong with any of these gift ideas.
