What is a Transitional Pastor?

The Transitional Pastor serves to lead a church through an intentional process of discovery and refocusing on their missional purpose. The transitional pastorate is a 12- to 18-month period of continued uninterrupted ministry that is designed to move a church through a viable transition.

It is a time of discovering who we are as a church and why God has us where we are currently.
It is a time of self-understanding in light of the church’s history both positively and negatively and how these events have contributed to our current existence.

It is a time of evaluation, refocusing, and planning for future missional ministry.
