The California-Nevada office of Leadership Development has released a new resource designed to help pastors and congregations through clergy appointment transitions.
The Pastoral Transition Guide for Congregations is rooted in Ecclesiastes 3:1 To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under heaven. It unpacks the difference between change and transition, describing change as a reality and transition as a journey, and provides information and resources for church leadership after learning of a pastoral transition.
The guide is divided into 3 primary sections and an appendix section filled with helpful samples and checklists.
The guide and appendix are posted Leadership Development webpage here. Those with either weak or no internet connection should contact their District Superintendent's office to receive a hard copy or a thumb drive with the content.
