Your Next Pastor: Guidelines for Finding God’s Person for Your Church
by Warren D. Bullock

A healthy transition to a new lead pastor isn’t an impossible goal. With a little planning and the determination to help the church transition smoothly, the departing pastor, the arriving pastor, and the congregation can all come through the process without experiencing spiritual and emotional trauma.

In Your Next Pastor, Warren Bullock uses his years of experience to create step-by-step details that will guide any church going through a change of leadership. He also includes a variety of letters to staff and pastoral candidates that will help the church board or pastoral search committee clearly communicate its intentions.
