Pastor H. B. Charles Returns To The Pulpit After Summer Sabbatical!
Good morning online congregation, Pastor H. B. Charles senior pastor of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church Jacksonville, Florida, was welcome back to the pulpit today after a summer sabbatical. In my opinion, it makes it so much easier for the pastor to step away and take a short sabbatical when he knows the church is in capable hands. I am amazed at pastors who have worked 10+ years never getting more than 2 weeks of vacation and have never been offered a paid sabbatical. A church is really only as healthy as its leaders... NO OTHER job is like that of a pastor... A true pastor works more than a few hours preparing a sermon, they spend so many more equipping, loving and leading in areas you and I cannot imagine.
Does your church allow for the pastor to take a sabbatical?
