  • 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?

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