Guided Transition Process for a Retiring Pastor/Vacancy



The document titled " Guided Transition Process for a Retiring Pastor"  provides an outline of the steps that need to happen as a long-established pastor prepares for retirement, a congregation prepares for that farewell and looks ahead at its next chapter, and the call process for a new pastor unfolds. The time needed for each step will be determined by the experience of the congregation in moving from one step to the next. Often an outside consultant will be engaged to help with assessing the mission, vision and readiness of the congregation to step into their next chapter of life.

Please review or download the document as your guide in this time of transition.
