Summer Sabbatical Plans

It is really great to serve at a church where appreciation and support of ministerial staff are in strong supply. One of the ways New Hope supports pastors is by granting them a six-week sabbatical after six consecutive years of service.

This year, we have two pastors who are eligible for sabbaticals, Ryan Nelson and myself. Sabbaticals not only allow our pastors to break from their routines for some rest and rejuvenation, but they allow the pursuit of continuing education, study, service and professional development. Here are some details I'd like to share with you:

Ryan Nelson, Worship Pastor (celebrating 6 years of service)

  • Sabbatical Timeframe: June/July
  • Goals: 1) renewal missions experience abroad; 2) research on current cultures that we are partnering with in missions; 3) learn from other church worship leaders and staff regarding leading worship and outreach

Keith Pate, Senior Pastor (celebrating 12 years of service)

  • Sabbatical Timeframe: August/September
  • Goals: 1) renewal retreat for pastors and wives; 2) visit and learn from multiple churches regarding preaching/teaching and leading a staff team; 3) create a detailed sermon schedule for 2024

Though you will notice our missing faces this summer, ministry and plans at New Hope will carry on well. I ask you to be praying for both Ryan and myself during this time away! Pray that God will grow us personally and professionally, and that He will give fresh vision on how He wants to work in and through us to serve New Hope, our community and our world.

Pastor Keith Pate
