Intentional rest and renewal is part of God's design for every person (and all of creation).
We recognize the benefits a sabbatical plan brings to the full-time minister, the Discover family, and the Kingdom of God overall.
While a minister is on sabbatical, a plan is implemented to cover his/her responsibilities, which assures that the ministry remains strong, and current leadership is not overburdened.
During a sabbatical, the minister focuses on spiritual, relational, emotional, and physical renewal.

Note: Lead Minister Steve Murphy will be participating in a sabbatical during the summer of 2017. Discipleship Minister Jim Brechbuhler will lead the staff during that time.
