What’s Next? – Transitions

What’s Next? When You are Considering a Change in Location, Vocation or Both

This article by Bill Wilson with Chris Gambill ran in the March 2011 edition of Baptists Today.

Resources for Considering a Change

The Center is available to help with your decisions about transitions.

  • Ask yourself these important questions:
    • What do you think is the ideal length of time for a minister to stay at one church?
    • Do you have a tenure in mind when you start at a ministry position?
    • Does knowing that Jesus provided us with a “theology of failure” (Mt. 10:14) make your ministry struggles more bearable?
    • Would you consider using a coach to guide you through the process of career choices?
  • If you are looking for a coach, turn to the Center for help. Our coaches guide ministers through strategic and goal-setting exercises to achieve better results in both personal and professional environments.
  • The Center for Congregational Health offers other services such as leadership development and consulting. Let us help you and your congregation through decisions of transitions.
