Sabbatical Policies

The Executive Presbytery recommends this sabbatical development model for local churches and district offices.  The length of a sabbatical is to be based on the tenure of the minister, the minister’s credibility, the felt needs of the minister and church or district, the financial situation of the church or district, and the availability of other leaders to fill the minister’s role during the minister’s absence.

For more information on the Biblical Principle, Purpose, Church Board or Presbytery Responsibility, Minister’s Responsibility, District Responsibility, and Typical Sabbatical Projects, below is the official Policy Statement from the General Council of the Assemblies of God.
