Sabbaticals can often emerge at just the right time. For Bo Prosser, a global denominational leader, it could not have come at a better time. “The brink of burnout comes faster than you’d think. I wasn’t sleeping well. Mentally, I didn’t want to think about anything of great significance. My empathy level was way down. I am a people person and I just frankly found myself not wanting to be around people,” said Prosser.

Some professionals take on Sabbatical to work on a research project or to simply rest. Prosser approached his six-month hiatus to work on his health, spiritual capacity, leadership development, numerous coaching certifications, and how he can best serve the Fellowship moving forward.
