Jim Bradshaw, Assistant to the District President for Education, will begin a three month sabbatical on Monday, April 1, 2013. The Kansas District personnel manual policy 3.630 states: “The opportunity for sabbatical shall be provided…after seven (7) years of continuous service to the District…” Having completed eight years, Jim applied and received approval by the District Board of Directors for his leave. Jim’s sabbatical proposal includes goals addressing personal spiritual renewal, physical renewal, and an educational project. The project title is “Discovering Best Practices for Church Worker and Family Wellness.” Jim will share the results of his project with the Board of Directors in August and at the Professional Church Workers' Conference in Hutchinson in October.
All matters related to the ministry areas under Jim’s administration should be addressed to his Administrative Assistant, Tami Lierz, at email@example.com and/or
