Pastors' Study Leave
Every Pastor in the PC(USA) receives two weeks annual study leave for personal and spiritual growth, as well as an allowance to fund their study. Our Personnel Policy states that pastors may accumulate both time and allowance up to three years.
Pastor Greg used one of his weeks this spring to study discipleship and the missional church at Calvin College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He will use his second week this summer to study and prepare for his preaching series in August.
Pastor Rich is taking his accumulated four weeks from 2016 and 2017 to study at Oxford University and at a retreat center in northern UK this August. Along with added vacation time with family, Rich and Marilyn will be away from July 28 through September 3.
Let's keep our Pastors in our prayers as they pursue their own growth this summer.
Elder Storm Metzger, Personnel
