In today’s podcast conversation, Steve Poe, Senior Pastor of Northview Church, shares how he and his church have normalized the discussion of succession by realizing every pastor is a temporary leader and that preparing for the future helps the long-term health of the church. Based on this firsthand experience, he offers practical insight for churches as they begin their succession process, especially during COVID-19 when it’s difficult to cast vision and prepare for the future. Steve reminds us that transition is natural and God calls pastors to their church for a season. Since no season lasts forever, it’s critical to have succession conversations often and early in order for churches to transition in a healthy manner.
This conversation serves to give you guidance as you cast vision for the future of your church and plan for your succession, no matter when it’s coming.
