Product Description

One way or another, every church will eventually lose its pastor or minister yet few congregations prepare for this dramatic event. The pastor's departure evokes a range of reactions and problems--sorrow and grief, uncertainty, loss of mission and mementum, power struggles--yet no one wants to talk about this elephant in the church boardroom. Weese amd Crabtree give here a guide to developing a succession plan for smoothing pastoral transitions.
