PODCAST | Building a Lasting Legacy For Your Church Through Succession With Pastor Steve Poe
In today’s conversation, our Founder and CEO, William Vanderblomen interviews Steve Poe, Senior Pastor of Northview Church in Indiana on the critical topic of succession.
In today’s podcast conversation, Steve shares how he and his church have normalized the discussion of succession by realizing every pastor is a temporary leader and that preparing for the future helps the long-term health of the church. Based on this firsthand experience, he offers practical insight for churches as they begin their succession process, especially during COVID-19 when it’s difficult to cast vision and prepare for the future. Steve reminds us that transition is natural and God calls pastors to their church for a season. Since no season lasts forever, it’s critical to have succession conversations often and early in order for churches to transition in a healthy manner.
This conversation serves to give you guidance as you cast vision for the future of your church and plan for your succession, no matter when it’s coming.
