Preaching Sabbath

Preaching Sabbath is a SKMB resource which provides the church an opportunity to grant their pastor a rest from preaching to focus on spiritual renewal, visioning, training, professional development, planning, counseling, etc.  The SKMB Director of Ministry will serve the church by preaching four consecutive Sunday sermons on one of the following themes or biblical sources:

·      Unwrapping John 1:14 (Advent Series)

·      Uniqueness of Christ

·      Sermon On The Mount

·      What Jesus Said About...

·      Parables of Jesus

·      Colossians

·      Rediscovering Worship

·      Hebrews

·      Psalms or Proverbs

·      Quest For Identity

·      Quest For Godliness

·      From Mission-Minded to Missional

·      What Did Jesus Do?

·      Selected Texts

Where to from here?

Yup, I’m Ready for my Sabbatical

We are a few days away from packing our van up and heading west for a three-month sabbatical with our family. To say we are excited would be an understatement. I know that we aren’t the only ones looking forward to an extended break as many other leaders and pastors are looking to catch their breath and rest after the marathon of the last few years.
