Your Next Move: Planning for Clergy Transitions, A Seedbed Conference Room Gathering

Published Date: March 1, 2013

On April 27, 2013, Dr. Bob Kaylor will lead a live online half day conference designed for pastors and churches preparing for leadership transitions. If you are a pastor preparing to go to a new congregation this is for you and some key leaders from your new church. During the conference, you will learn some of the essential tasks that lead to an effective transition. The greatest driver of success and satisfaction in the early days of transition are all about achieving early wins, and Bob will outline a process to identify and achieve them using a transition team. You will develop an intentional learning plan that will help the pastor understand the congregation, the congregation to get to know the new pastor. You will learn strategies for effective communication during the transition and how to effectively say goodbye to your previous pastor or congregation in ways that bless everyone involved. You’ll also discover ways to maintain balance during the transition, helping the pastor pay attention to his or her family and spiritual life during this busy time. 

Registration is $49 which covers one congregation (transition team plus new pastor). This includes 2 copies of Bob’s new book (one print and one electronic) “Your Next Move: Planning for Clergy Transitions,” up to 20 downloads of the conference workbook and unlimited access to the video conference for six months.
