Reflections from a Six-Month Sabbatical

Karen Carr & Darlene Jerome, Barnabas International

After 15 years of intense ministry with plenty of risk experiences in West Africa, Karen and Darlene entered a major transition in their ministries.  What a blessing when their leadership encouraged them to take a 6-month sabbatical before diving in again!  They will discuss some of the tensions related to accepting the value of a time like this, share some of their sabbatical learnings and blessings and then suggest how supporting churches and mission leaders can encourage the sabbatical process.  They will also field your questions concerning sabbaticals.
