Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

Sep 07, 2019

We have repeatedly seen the benefits of the team ministry model at BLC. Council has had significant conversation about plans to ensure appropriate coverage during Pastor Hoffman’s parental leave. She expects to be away from BLC from the time Baby Hoffman comes (due around the middle of October) and will return the week of January 6. After that point, she expects to take 10 weeks of family leave from January through the first birthday of Baby Hoffman (as allowed by NY state law). She will return at a reduced schedule January – May and take additional time in summer 2020. In order to cover Pastor Hoffman’s time away and ensure the existing ministry has appropriate pastoral support, Council approved expanding Pastor. Amy’s position to full time for the coming program year (September – May).
