A Retiring Pastor: The Most Severe Earthquake Your Church Can Survive
For several decades, transitions of long-term pastors will represent one of the most traumatic experiences for most churches. A misstep, based on poor planning, is one of the most expensive mistakes your church can make — and you may pay for it for at least 10 years!

It is based on real-life experiences from consulting dozens of churches that are saying goodbye to a pastor, while making the best informed choices about the next pastor to lead their churches.
