Guiding through Pastoral Transitions
“Thank you very much for the extraordinary help you’ve given [our congregation] during our transition. You skillfully and tactfully guided both us and [former pastor] through a difficult situation. We sincerely appreciate your help to the PNC (Pastor Nominating Committee) to move the pastoral search forward. God truly blessed us with your presence and oversight.”
From saying good-bye to a former pastor through calling and onboarding a new pastor, we guide, counsel, and offer search services to congregations during transitions in pastoral leadership.
Once upon a time there was a standard formula for how a transition works. Not anymore. Our Executive Staff and Commission on Ministry (COM) have developed a variety of models for pastoral succession. Get in touch early on when anticipating a transition for best results.
We engage with session, whole congregation, pastor nominating committees and church staff so that all parts of the body work together for health through the transition.
