Succession Planning

Guiding Your Church's Future: 
Seamless Succession Planning for Lasting Stability

Senior leaders often give little or no consideration to what will happen once they leave the organization. They sometimes think it’s too soon to begin planning for a transition that is still years down the road. But as the transition nears, a sense of anxiety grows. This is often due to a lack of plans or direction.

There are many unanswered questions that can leave a leader paralyzed when thinking about succession planning:

  1. How do I identify the right person? 

  2. Is the right person inside of the organization now? Should I be looking outside? 

  3. How and when do I communicate to a potential successor? 

  4. Who needs to be involved and informed at different stages in the process? 

  5. How do I ensure that my family and my future are taken care of as I am processing this? 

  6. What do I not know that could negatively impact my church in this process?
