Pastoral Transitions 2024
Leaving Well/Starting Well
Congratulations on your new appointment. We are excited to partner with you as you transition.
If you have questions or concerns about the process, please contact our Transitions Coordinator — firstname.lastname@example.org
Transitions Process Registration
Our REGISTRATION form will walk you through the process and will allow you to register for different events based on your specific transitions requirements.
Who should register?
One representative from the SPRC and the Incoming Pastor should EACH fill out the registration form. There are some events that only pertain to the pastor and some events that only the SPRC representative can select. So, ultimately we should recieve TWO registrations from each church in transition–one from an SPRC member and one from the incoming pastor.
Resources for Transitions
