We recognize the benefits a sabbatical plan brings to the full-time minister, the Discover family, and the Kingdom of God overall.

During a sabbatical, the minister focuses on spiritual, relational, emotional, and physical renewal.  For our full sabbatical policy, download the PDF named "Sabbatical FAQs" here.
