Sabbaticals are one of the most necessary but least understood practices in the church.
Many leaders desperately need a sabbatical but don’t have a roadmap or theology that would allow one to become a reality. Not only that, but the confusion around the purpose of a sabbatical often results in a lack of support from elder boards and employers.
Sabbaticals are complex in that they require a shared theology, massive paradigm shifts, and careful planning in order to be done well. For this reason, most leaders and pastors will never experience the deep restoration that a sabbatical provides.
In this week’s podcast, I explore the biblical definition of a sabbatical and make a case for why all leaders should, at the right time, take one.
