Sabbaticals are a very needed part of staying in spiritual rhythm.  There are a number of reasons people take sabbaticals; exhaustion, as a transition between two jobs, to study in a particular focus, and to simply be renewed by unplugging from the normal day to day and making space to be with Jesus.  Sabbatical is not a word common to our YFC culture but we have learned a lot from our friends at the Navigators.  This resource is intended to give you some direction as you consider either a sabbatical for you or creating a policy for your chapter. 

We have other resources available including additional information packets and suggestions that will help you plan and re-enter after a sabbatical.  Nina Edwards and Jerry Wheeler would be happy to walk through any of the material with you over the phone. Email with any questions or if you would like to talk with Nina or Jerry.
