  • 1.  Sabbatical Policy

    Posted 13 days ago
    St Trinity is looking to establish a Sabbatical Policy and we have a lot of questions about how to start and what to include.
    When we approached the congregation, they had a lot more questions than we had answers.
    Does anyone have a "simple" guideline with all the answers?

    Hi Richard,

    Follow the links below for access to a couple LCMS churches that have shared their policies as examples.

    Sabbatical Policy Examples - Northwest District LCMS (nowlcms.org)

    Sabbatical Guidelines - Michigan District, LCMS

    Hope this helps.

    Blessings,

    Richard,

    Grace Place Wellness, now part of LCEF, has recently created sabbatical guidance for congregations with possible coaching and even scholarships. See their information at:
