Pastoral Sabbatical

We care deeply about the long-term care of your soul. Ministry is not a sprint; it is a marathon. Those who complete it well are the ones who come to the end of their paid ministry career with a well-developed soul and a passionate commitment to ongoing personal leadership development. I am convinced, given the demands on pastors in today’s culture that the only way to reach the ministry “finish line” with those two priorities being lived out in our lives is to have taken well-thought out, well-designed, and well-timed sabbaticals along the way.
