A sabbatical can be a game-changer for high capacity, high vision lead pastors, offering an opportunity for deep rest and renewal. Those who have the chance to take one often find it to be an invaluable investment in their short-term ministry, long-term ministry, and overall spiritual well-being.

But do lead pastors deserve a sabbatical? The answer might surprise you.

In this episode of Preaching Through Podcast we dive deep into the most pressing and frequently asked questions about sabbaticals for pastors:

What, exactly, is a sabbatical?
Who should get a sabbatical?
How long should a sabbatical be?
What is a pastor supposed to do during sabbatical?
Who carries the weight while the pastor is gone?
How does the pastors assimilate back into ministry upon return?

We also explore practical tips on planning a sabbatical, from setting the right expectations to ensuring the time away is truly rejuvenating. Learn how to make a compelling case for this invaluable time away and navigate potential obstacles, even in environments where sabbaticals are not the norm.

The aim of a sabbatical is to provide a period of refreshment that can help pastors return to their congregations with renewed energy and perspective. We touch on the challenges and misconceptions surrounding sabbaticals and how to address them.

The topic of pastoral sabbaticals doesn't have to be a taboo discussion. If you can learn how to properly frame up the idea of a sabbatical to your governing board, even churches that have had poor experiences with the concept of sabbaticals can find they are incredible investments in the life of the church and the church leader.
