Abstract
Business and nonprofit organizations have been concerned about strategic planning and leadership transition matters for several decades. The principles and practices involved in growing organizational health, staying true to an organization's founding charter, and executing seamless leadership transitions date back to the ministries of Jesus and Paul and are increasingly expressed by the best authors on leadership today. This dissertation aims to utilize biblical, historical, and cultural resources, as well as practical insights from a ministry model worked out with three churches, to help church leaders conduct effective long-range planning involving emergency, strategic, and leadership transition planning.
