A long service leave Pastor

June 10th, 2013

I wonder if these exist or not? A long service leave Pastor.

By this I was thinking of a Pastor who comes in and fills in for the Pastor and his family while they are away on extended leave.

They could preach positive motivational sermons, or a basics of faith refresher, or another series that was prepared already.

It would give the church a chance to hear a different voice for a time and also the Pastor could relax knowing the church is in “safe” hands.

I could imagine doing this in the future for smaller churches who don’t have people who can step in and take over. I wonder if a long service leave Pastor exists?

God Bless,
