Serving in the Office of the Holy Ministry offers much joy, but there are times also when rest, rejuvenation, worship, fellowship, and study can provide pastors with renewed purpose and joy in service. LCMS pastors are invited to participate in Concordia Seminary’s Pastor Sabbatical Week program.
Join us on campus for a week of rest, study, connection with faculty and students, and personal reflection and self-care. Our Pastor Sabbatical Week program includes these opportunities:
- Attend classes of your choosing
- Worship in chapel
- Enjoy a one-on-one luncheon with members of the faculty
- Access to our library resources, including one of the largest Lutheran reference and rare book collections in existence
- Time to develop a sermon series, worship planning, or just read a book
- Participate in campus activities
- Enjoy the parks, museums, and cultural activities near campus
Participants also may request the opportunity to preach at chapel during the week they are on campus. Such requests will be accommodated if possible.
There is no cost to the pastor participating in the program; updated dormitory housing and the meal plan is provided. However, if you wish to bring your wife, the additional room and board cost is $72.
