Pastor Matt Frey and his family being honored for Pastor Appreciation Month

The best pastor in Montrose

In honor of Pastor Appreciation Month, Forward in Christ is featuring photos of pastors submitted by you on its "This is WELS" page in October. A member at Living Word, Montrose, Colo., submitted this tribute: "Pastor Matt Frey is a wonderful pastor to all ages! I have never seen a pastor give the time and devotion that he does to God’s Word or his flock."

Pictured above are Pastor Frey and his family during a pastor appreciation event that Living Word hosted for them in 2013. Pastor Frey's T-shirt reads: "The best pastor in Montrose."

Pastor Frey is also pictured below hanging Christmas decorations and receiving a gift from the children in his congregation.
