Overview
A 40-day devotional guide to help churches with new pastors strengthen their relationships with God and one another. Much time, effort, and prayer goes into selecting a new pastor. However many pastors get off to a poor start because the members of the congregation and the new pastor don???t have an effective means for getting to know each other. This study helps congregations and pastors get off on the right foot and build a successful partnership that starts strong and endures. A poorly begun pastor-congregation relationship results in hurt and frustration, eventually lurching to a miserable conclusion. Churches invest a lot into finding a pastor, and this book will help make sure your church gets the relationship off to a great start. Getting a new pastor off to a good start is critical to the over 100,000 churches facing changes in leadership each year. This 40-day congregation-wide study provides the foundation for a successful ministry partnership. "Welcome Pastor" is the first book to offer a clear, simple process for building a successful partnership between a new pastor and a congregation. Its combination of devotional readings and dialogue is easy and pleasurable to read without being simplistic or trite.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Simple and Incredibly Helpful Resource for Pastors and Congregations  Sep 19, 2007
Fred Oaks has given pastors and congregations a wonderful tool that will serve to nurture both healthy communication and productive partnership in ministry in those critical first days, weeks, and months of a new pastorate. In a time when the average tenure of pastors is shrinking, it provides "an opportunity to build something that endures." Its beauty is in its simplicity. Through guided daily devotions and corporate dialogue meetings, it provides a context for the pastor and people to "practice" the communication and relational skills necessary for the inevitable challenges that arise in congregational life. While it is intended as a resource for new pastorates, with a little "tweaking", it could also be a useful tool for congregations and pastors to get "reacquainted" down the road.
 
Wonderful Gift!  Aug 24, 2006
"Welcome,Pastor!" made a wonderful addition to a welcome gift basket for our new pastor. I thought this Godly tool would challenge him to embrace this new opportunity.
 
An ideal resource for creating and strengthening bonds of faith in God  Feb 11, 2006
Written by Fred Oaks, a pastor since 1981 and a mentor to dozens of other pastors, Welcome, Pastor!: Building a Productive Pastor-Congregation Partnership in 40 Days is a 40-day study designed to help congregations and pastors meet one another on good terms and make a strong start in getting to know one another. Consisting of an introductory meeting, 40 days of self-guided prayer and four dialogue meetings, Welcome, Pastor! is an ideal resource for creating and strengthening bonds of faith in God, the teachings of Jesus, and the trust humans place within one another. Highly recommended for any pastor or congregation preparing to accept a change.
 
The First Steps on a New Path  Dec 21, 2005
This is a wonderful resource for any congregation to use in forging a relationship with a new pastor. It can be used by a small group or the entire congregation. It is well written, easy to use and understand.
I have recommended this book to our church leadership team for use with our new pastor.
 
Welcome Pastor  Dec 21, 2005
A Pastor can find starting a new work with a church to be taxing with new names to be memorized and new faces to be recognized. I found using Welcome Pastor to be a nice way to introduce myself to my new congregation. Yet, we were able together to uncover our expectations of one another. Before we were done I had several participants in the class express how much the enjoyed the readings.
