Intentional Pastoral Transition
Far to few pastors and churches have intentioally thought about healthy pastoral transitions.

The church would be far better served if we developed an intentional succession plan. Here are two books every pastor and church board should read. The time to think about pastoral succession is now, not when the pastor has resigned.
