Transition Resources

All clergy transition appointments and churches welcoming new appointments will be invited to attend a workshop to be scheduled this spring. Churches should send a team of 4-6 people that includes key leaders. The current pastor joins the team for the morning “Transition-Out” session and the incoming pastor joins the team for the afternoon “Transition-In” session.
