What if when a pastor moved on, the church knew exactly what to do to find a suitable replacement because a plan and a process had been in place for some time? While there is no simple, one-size-fits-all solution to the puzzle of planning for a seamless pastoral succession, Next offers church leaders and pastors a guide to asking the right questions in order to plan for the future. Vanderbloemen, founder of a leading pastoral search firm, and Bird, an award-winning writer and researcher, share insider stories of succession successes and failures in dozens of churches, including some of the nation's most influential. Through case studies, interviews, and real-time research, the authors demystify successful pastoral succession and help listeners prepare for an even brighter future for their ministries.

A must read if you are a pastor or leader
This is a must read book for all, young and old pastor's. A book for deacon and elder. When the principles a applied, they will prevent the church and pastor from suffering. Thank you guys for taking the time to write a such good book.

Get to the point
While I was very excited and agreed with the ideas underlying the books premise ... I gave up after the first 3 chapters ( and preface.. Intro.. Etc) that seemed to be more about how great this book was going to be and how much work the authors had done in preparing it. I wondered if it weren't more a tool to get them more consultation work than actually providing resources.
