Time Off Policy


Employees who serve on-staff for a partial year receive pro-rated vacation days, based on percentage of the year worked.

Vacation days do not roll over from year to year.

Vacation days must be requested at least 45 days in advance by emailing your team's Lead Team member.

Days missed Sunday-Thursday count as vacation days.

Cannot miss 2 Sundays in a row.

You can miss up to 4 Sundays in a year, and you can have 2 additional Sundays for ministry outdates.

No more than 2 team leads out at a time.

Only one full-time staff member from each team out at a time.


Ministry outdates are tracked and subject to approval.


Certain times of the year are categorized as especially important weekdays or Sundays for staff to be in the office.

Please check the Grace City Calendar for the latest black out dates before you make a time off request.
