During our Vision Night, we expressed that one area the elders would like to focus on is Biblical rest. One specific application was offering the Bradshaw family an 8-week sabbatical. (If you missed our Vision Night, or would like to review, you can find it here.) As we quickly approach the start of their sabbatical, we want to remind/re-announce it to you, answer questions, and let you know how you can be involved.
While rest is one of the goals of a sabbatical, Jason and Jodi are taking very intentional steps for it to be a time that impacts their ministry indefinitely. In the same way, their sabbatical will impact Greenville Grace in ways we can’t fully predict.
As was mentioned previously (click here to see the previous mention, click here to hear the Vision Night audio when we first presented the concept), the Bradshaws have a game plan with CrossPoint that will allow them to take full advantage of their sabbatical. The following are ways you can help support them and maximize the effect of the sabbatical upon all of us:
As has been mentioned (here and here), gifting a pastor with a sabbatical is new territory for our church. We have sought advice and have asked questions. The following are questions we’ve heard since Vision Night and that we ourselves have asked. (If these questions do not address something you are wondering, please contact us. Someone else is probably wondering the same thing you are.)
I admit it; we use obscure songs for our corporate worship time. Personally, I love some of the thematic content and Biblical richness that some (albeit lesser known) artists have to offer.
So, here is how I intend to help you; I’ve looked over our song usage for the last year (April 2014 to April 2015) and I’ve identified the songs we’ve used most during that time. Not only that, I’ve provided the artists name and the album you can find it on so the you can go to iTunes or Amazon.com (or spotify) and be an informed consumer.
