Item Description...
Overview
If you're thinking of applying for a position in another church, you'll appreciate the sensible guidance Coyner offers on transitioning from one pastorate to another! Discover how to establish working relationships with church members, move smoothly out of the "honeymoon" phase, and more. A valuable resource for new and seasoned pastors. Michael Coyner argues that though the early months and years of a new pastorate can be stressful and difficult, they can also be particularly fruitful. These new beginnings can be among the most rewarding times of a pastor's career, especially if the minister seizes opportunities for establishing and strengthening relationships with church members and plans carefully for the transition out of the initial "honeymoon" period. Drawing on years of experience as a pastor of local congregations as well as extensive work supervising pastors, Coyner provides solid, sensible guidance on making a good move into a successful ministry. Written in consultation with pastors from both "call" and "appointment" systems, this book will be of value to those who are starting a new ministry placement, whether they be fresh out of seminary or long-time seasoned veterans.

An Outstanding Resource!  Dec 11, 2000
This book is a practical guide for pastors who are making the move to a new church appointment or call. United Methodist Bishop Coyner gives practical suggestions on making transitions, including advice on what to do the first week, first month, and first year in the new parish. The chapters on assessing your leadership style and the leadership style needed by the new parish are especially helpful. It is a quick read and easy to review over and over as you prepare for a move. An outstanding resource!
