In June my wife and I celebrated 16 years of ministry at FLAG Church. Ministry is amazingly fulfilling, and awfully draining.
After 9 years here our Board instituted a simple sabbatical policy, one month off after 2 years of full time pastoral service. We took our first sabbatical back in 2009. Our second sabbatical was in 2013.
Though overdue by one year, we start our current sabbatical from June 21-July 21.
We will be in non-ministry mode during this time. If you are needing pastoral care from FLAG Church, please contact the church office.
We are looking forward to unplugging and unwinding so we can continue to be effective for the Kingdom and FLAG church for many years to come.
I spoke about Sabbath and Sabbaticals here.
