If you help lead a church and are either in the process, or soon will be, proper succession planning is critical for long term success. Take careful note of an upcoming online conference on this topic from the good folks at Leadership Network.
Here is a teaser from their website:
** If AACN can be of help to you or your church please let us know. Our goal is to see your organization succeed.
While there are numerous stories describing the highly visible failures in transition and succession, there are even more stories of the positive transition from one pastor to another that have rarely been heard. To highlight what is being learned in these cases, as well as the hard cases, Leadership Network has enlisted over 20 speakers to address the topic.
The conference, titled Succession: Essential Learnings on Healthy Church Leadership Transitions, will be offered free to participants. This conference is part of the Leadership Network ongoing series of groundbreaking, global leadership conferences that annually serve over 50,000 leaders worldwide as they watch and listen online. Speakers that day include: Max Lucado, Jonathan Falwell, Robert A. Schuller, Bryan Carter, Frances Chan, Brady Boyd and over twenty more. There will be a mix of interviews conducted by Leadership Network Research Director Dr. Warren Bird as well as standalone talks by leading pastors.
Dave Travis, CEO of Leadership Network, describes the need for the conference: “While I regularly consult and advise many large churches each year on succession plans, I know of no better resource to help churches as they think about this critical issue than this half-day conference.”
