Rest for Pastors

I’ve always liked the idea of pastoral sabbaticals. I’m thankful our church allows for them – even for associate pastors. I was thoroughly refreshed and encouraged when I took one – and still reflect on what I learned.  Yet like most church leadership teams we tend to struggle to understand sabbaticals and have re-written our church policies at least three times. This article by an elder at Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC. shares some well considered insights for churches and leaders considering the sabbatical option.
