Study sabbatical at Oxford university
After serving as the Executive Director for 17 years, Christine went on a study sabbatical to Oxford, England, where she completed a course at the Oxford Center for Christian Apologetics (OCCA), a ministry of Ravi Zacharias, in 2017. As a result door was opened for her to stay in Oxford to pursue a degree in theology at Oxford University before launching out in her next phase of ministry.
What’s a sabbatical?
The origin comes from the biblical sabbath mentioned in Genesis, where the seventh day is set aside as a day of rest. In modern times it often refers to a rest from work, or a break, often lasting from two months to a year.
Dictionary.com defines it as:
“any extended period of leave from one's customary work, especially for rest, to acquire new skills or training, etc.”
Rather than take the customary six to 12 months leave or furlough every three to five years as is the case with many Christian missionary agencies, Christine has opted to take her sabbatical after 17 years of full-time service.
