Preparing the Church for a Transition

Monday, January 16, 2023 | Guest: Dan Boyce |
Topics: Church Life

Churches sometimes go for long periods of time—even years—between pastors. In some cases, the church is unprepared for a change. So how can a pastor transitioning out of a church prepare the assembly to call its next pastor? Marshall Fant interviews Pastor Dan Boyce, senior pastor of Hill Village Bible Church in Hill, NH, about this topic. Pastor Boyce, who has had a lifetime burden to mentor men for the ministry, says that while preparing the next pastor, it is also important to prepare the church for a transition in leadership.
