A Model for Transitioning Leadership in the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of the Church of God In Christ
Nathaniel Alfonso Hall Jr.
Oftentimes the mission, vision, purpose, and plan of God lives longer than an individual. To see it achieved, it must be effectively passed to the next generation. No generation stands independent of its predecessors or those that follow. In fact, generations overlay and overlap one another. Each is uniquely equipped with men and women created by God for that generation. Every single generation stands on the shoulders of those who went before them. People build on and must not destroy the foundation that is laid before them. Therefore, the church's success is determined by and dependent upon the successful transition of its leadership. This research will explore the good, the bad, and the indifferent regarding this subject matter and document best practices for a successful leadership transition.
