Overview

Am I done here? Do I have something further to offer this congregation? Is it time to seek a leadership position elsewhere? Or is this merely a case of “spring fever?”

Many pastors wrestle with questions like these each year, never sure if the time is right for a pastoral move. Veteran pastor Stan Toler comes alongside the pastor in transition to help assess the reasons for change and to make sure that the decision to move—and the move itself—will go smoothly. Based on decades of pastoral experience, Stan Toler offers wise counsel and timely insight into the issues of leaving your current parish while preparing for your next phase of ministry. Subjects include:

  • Assessing your leadership potential
  • Assessing your leadership fit
  • Reasons to consider a change
  • Reasons to consider staying
  • Selecting your next ministry setting
  • Presenting yourself well in person and in print
  • Interviewing

  • Family moving do’s and don’ts
  • Establishing your new home
  • The first 90 days of a new pastorate
