Pastoral Search and Transition Guide
ECO has created a extensive resource for churches in transition. This guide offers a path for churches, leading them from succession to the onboarding of their next pastor. We understand that each church reading this will be in a unique situation.
In seasons of transition, many churches simply ask who the next pastor will be and seek to pass the baton from one leader to another. However, in order for a transition to be successful, a church must consider the overall health of the congregation, its leadership, and its effects on the upcoming season of transition. In an effort to prepare for these changes, ECO is working to help equip our churches— whether small, medium, or large—to prepare for these inevitable transitions. Whatever your situation, we commend this guide to you as a template for thinking through how you might search for and call your next pastor.
