Finding rest in a Sabbatical

Please join us in prayer for our fearless leader, Josh Stock, and his family as Josh heads into a three month sabbatical this summer to seek rest and refreshment. The Stocks moved to Summit County in 2004 to help pioneer Snowboarders and Skiers for Christ in the United States. After 12 years of laughter and tears, triumphs and failures, Josh has experienced no real break. In the last year our board of directors and team of staff have developed a plan to help Josh seek renewal in Christ and fresh vision for SFC during the months of May, June, and July.

Josh is firmly committed to this crazy calling TO BE A LIGHT ON THE HILL and it is easy to see why life on the front lines can wear a guy out after 12 long years. He’s planning to spend these months away from a constant connection to email, phone, and Facebook to allow space for concentration on his relationship with God and with his family.

I think I can speak for the whole SFC family when I say: We love you Josh. Thank you so much for your vision, direction, and tireless work the last 12 years. Go spend some time with your family and fall more in love with Jesus. We can’t wait to have you back.

If you have any questions on this or anything else relating to SFC feel free to reach out to Nick (nick@sfcusa.org) or myself (randy@sfcusa.org) and we’d be stoked to help you out.
