My podcast guest this week is Gary Garcia — again.
This time we talk about Pastoral Transition from a unique perspective. I was Gary’s lead pastor for 25 years, then we transitioned to Gary being the lead pastor, while I stayed on the pastoral staff with him.
In this episode Gary and I talk about
- Why that happened
- How we did it
- How it’s been going since
Some key points about making a successful pastoral transition will include:
- We need to know God is calling us to do it, even if it’s outside our comfort zone.
- We must spend the necessary time to talk, think and pray about it. It’s better to do it well than do it fast.
- Each needs to support the other. The former lead pastor must truly let go of control, and the new pastor needs to honor the past without being intimidated by it.
