Our Lead Pastor, David Esau, will be away on a half-sabbatical from April 10th to May 24th, 2023. The rest of the leadership team and admin staff will continue to be available while he is away.
Why a Sabbatical?
The principle of a sabbatical is rooted in God's institution of a "sabbath rest" on the seventh year--a God-given block of time for rest and renewal (see Leviticus 25). This time is meant to be a time of enrichment and refreshment by study, retreat, project, or other special events. We believe that a sabbatical increases the effectiveness and longevity of our pastoral staff in our congregation.
What will David be doing on Sabbatical?
During his sabbatical David is planning a combination of study, reading, rest, and preparation for the summer and fall sermon series.
