Stress and burnout are common complaints among church professionals. Sabbaticals provide not only relief, but renewal for one’s ministry.
A sabbatical may enrich your life, as well as your ministry. The affordability of a Christian Home Exchange puts a sabbatical within the realm of possibility for church professionals.
Those who exchange their homes may have entirely different needs and aspirations. One may want a study sabbatical. Another may want a brief experience of ministry in a different setting. Still another may only want to get away from it all for awhile.
So long as you and your exchange partner can agree on the arrangements for the exchange of your homes, the way you spend your time during the exchange is usually a personal matter.
