Sabbatical Pilgrimage Experience and Sabbatical Leadership Experience

Programs »Pastoral »Sabbatical Pilgrimage And Sabbatical Leadership Experience


The two EAPI sabbatical programs are holistic experiences which cater to persons who are in transition or in need of a change of space away from their busy lives of ministry to allow time to rest, renew, reflect, and recreate in an Asian cross–cultural ecclesial context.

Its unique feature is the small community based orientation that capitalizes on forming a sanctuary of friends whose common desire is for a “Sabbath”. Here a person rediscovers the richness of one’s being and appreciates more profoundly the graciousness and beauty of God’s creative love.

The 6-month SLE program from January to June focuses on understanding leadership and management, while the 4-month SPE program from August to November concentrates on psycho-spiritual integration and healing.

The programs are flexible enough to respond to the individual needs like scholarly research, spiritual reading, and pursuing hobbies.
