“Succession in the Church: Leading at the Crossroads of Stewardship and Discipleship.”
A century has passed since the renewals of Topeka, Kansas, and Azusa Street. The works pioneered throughout the 20th century are now the multigenerational works of the 21st century. Succession is required for a work to succeed its pioneering generation. The church must have a holistic view of succession planning and management, recognizing that it is crucial for every leadership level in the church and not just the senior pastor and that it must be the norm for established organizations. Success in the church is more than an essential component of organizational leadership; it fulfills biblical principles such as stewardship and discipleship.
