The video and worksheet resources below were designed to be used by leadership to plan for a healthy pastoral transition so that churches receiving a new pastor can continue to live out the mission of making disciples.
The resources are organized by topic in videos and worksheets. You are encouraged to watch each video then complete the assigned worksheet for the video. The worksheet will help church leaders plan an aspect of the transition. While leaders may watch the videos separately, doing the transition planning as a team is essential so it is important to figure out a way to discuss the information and worksheets as a team. These discussions can happen through Zoom, Facetime, or by phone.
It is recommended that you watch the Changeover Zone video appropriate for you first—there is one for clergy and another for church leaders. This provides a large view of how to make a positive transition. After that it is recommended that you watch the other videos, which speak more specifically about moving in East Ohio, in numerical order for the best flow.
Please click the option for "Fullscreen" in the bottom right corner of each video for best viewing.
