Is your church preparing to call a pastor? What practical things can you do to lessen the burden on the incoming man? Churches without pastors are vulnerable and need to prepare themselves for their next pastor. In this podcast, Marshall Fant discusses with two GFA interim pastors, David Shoaf and Paul Stevenson, practical things such as membership records, leadership transparency, and internet service.
