Enjoy the Fruit

Leadership Network 2013 Succession Online Event


In this 5-minute video from the 2013 Succession Online Event, Jay Passavant, Founding Pastor of North Way Christian Community in Wexford, Pennsylvania, and author of Seamless Succession encourages churches to invite their outgoing senior pastors into continued ministry so they are able to see the fruit of their investment over the years.

As you watch this session, take notes and write down thoughts about how it can impact the way you lead and transition.

It’s not required, but Jay paints a great picture of the blessing of including your outgoing Senior Pastor in future ministry. If you are an outgoing Senior Pastor, consider to what extend you’d like to be involved in future ministry of the church. If you are a newer leader, consider inviting your predecessor to a ministry event so he or she can see where their ministry has now taken your church.
