How many years has your pastor served in ministry? How are the pastor and pastoral family doing? Do you realize that those with the pastoral calling are "gifts" to you and the body of Christ? How are you loving and honoring that gift from Christ--your pastor? How have you thanked him/her for the self-sacrifice and faithful service?

More churches than ever are looking for help initiating and navigating a ministry sabbatical for their pastor(s). Many of those churches have realized that "healthy churches are led by healthy leaders." They have been led of the Spirit to love, esteem, and honor their pastor (and pastoral family).

This primer comes alongside the church and its leaders, providing the rationale, the path, and the means for successfully initiating and navigating a spiritual renewal leave--a Sabbatical--for their beloved pastor(s) and pastoral family. This primer is a companion to A Sabbatical Primer for Pastors: How to Initiate and Navigate a Spiritual Renewal Leave.

  • Why does my pastor need a ministry sabbatical?
  • How will a ministry sabbatical benefit our church?
  • Who needs a sabbatical?
  • When should my pastor take a sabbatical?
  • How long should a sabbatical be? What's the criteria?
  • Where can we find the guidance and resources to plan and carry out a sabbatical?
  • How do we begin?
  • What do we do, or what steps do we take before, during, and after the sabbatical?

  • A brief, biblical context and rationale for sabbatical and Sabbath
  • Practical steps and phases for planning, initiating, and navigating the sabbatical from beginning to reentry
  • Answers to "honest fears and reservations" church members have regarding sabbaticals
  • Helpful tools in the appendices, along with other samples of proposals, letters, and a an article on the need for ministry sabbaticals
  • Encouragement for those who find the whole idea to be overwhelming
  • Five testimonies of pastor's wives as to how the sabbatical benefited the church, the family, and the pastor
  • A starting point for sabbatical policies, housing, funding sources, and other helpful information to assist in planning the pastoral sabbatical
  • Helps for the church to understand the need of a pastoral renewal leave--a ministry sabbatical

Vom Autor:

Pastors are often over-worked and under-appreciated. Much of what they do day in and day out goes unseen by the congregation. Here I'm lifting the blind so that the congregational leadership can get an unhindered view into the pastoral ministry and the unique demands it places upon the gifted people God has given to the body of Christ. The need for a ministry sabbatical becomes immediately apparent once someone other than the pastor makes his or her needs known.

A Sabbatical Primer for Churches answers many of the most presenting questions surrounding ministry sabbaticals and offers a rationale, along with practical steps, to initiate and navigate a successful spiritual renewal leave--a ministry sabbatical for the pastor and/or pastoral family.
