Transitions are a necessary part of life and ministry. We are called to follow God wherever he leads us, and sometimes this takes people to new challenges and opportunities. But these transitions are an absolutely crucial time for both the departing leader and those left behind. If they are handled well, they can be a time of great growth. This resource helps you prepare for your own transition and also lead your church or ministry into the next phase of its life.
