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?

  1. I am a big supporter of Pastors taking extended time off.
    It’s healthy for both the pastor and the church.

    I use to attend a church where the head pastor would take 3 months out of a year (not 3 in a row) off.

    It would allow the pastor time off from what can be a busy schedule.
    Give other leaders a chance to preach and give a different perspective on issues.
    And allow some younger leaders to gain some experience leading the Service.
    (And they all had full time jobs outside of the church and families)

  3. I believe if pastors today were doing as pastors and not CEO's then that would make their job much easier.

  4. We dont call it a sabbatical. My Pastor takes at minimum of 4 vacations a year as he has a large young family with kids ranging from 2 to 12 and I support it. I dont have to worry about him burning himself out and retiring early now. If he keeps this us, we should have him as Pastor for at least another 25 years.

    1. At my old church we would give the pastor the summer off. Heck, the attendance was down during time any way. 💋💋
