See You Soon!
May 22, 2017
I’m so thankful for our church – thank you for your partnership in mission, your friendship, and your support! Today I begin my first steps into a very new and unfamiliar journey of Sabbatical after 10 years of ministry with Harbor Churches. Over the next 12 weeks I hope to explore new rhythms in my life and develop new and deeper ways of hearing God’s voice in my life and leadership and I could not do that without you.
My hope this summer is to pursue some classes, some reading, some spiritual direction, and some visits to other churches to get a new perspective on my ministry leadership. I’ve never been able to have that kind of freedom outside of the typical day-to-day and week-to-week rhythms of ministry. Thank you for this incredible gift!
I plan to return to regular ministry rhythms again on August 21 (though I will be present at the August 13 baptism service at Camp Geneva) and I expect this sabbatical period will provide me with new vision and clarity for my next 10 years of ministry with Harbor Churches!
I, and my family, will be out of contact with the church throughout this period, but if you have need of anything, please connect with one of our staff or reach out to Pastor Ben Peters who will be leading the ministry while I’m away. Also, if you haven’t yet, please check out the FAQ’s about this sabbatical.
My prayer for you in my absence will be that you become Christ’s church together in new and powerful ways and that He would continue to lead you and those around you back to Himself.
See you soon,
