Leading Through Succession: Why Pastoral Leadership is the key to a Healthy Transition
C Andrew Flowers
The goal of this dissertation is to encourage pastors to see that succession planning is an important part of their job. I will investigate cultural changes, secular succession practices, and church leadership methods in an effort to show why it is important for pastors to take the lead in succession. This is not a procedural manual with particular recipe to follow. Rather, this is a leadership training tool that calls pastors to guide their church through the often traumatic process of succession.
