SOLUTIONS FOR CHURCHES AND PASTORS

A Lot is Riding on How Your Church Leadership Functions

The effective pursuit of your mission, the hopes of your congregation, and your reputation in the world all count on the unity and skill of your pastoral team and leaders. 

Despite the best intentions, deep faith commitments, and noble missions, churches struggle to field and maintain healthy staff teams and senior leaders.

Case Study: An Interim Pastor’s Path to Succession Success

“Just taking one hour every few weeks to have someone listen and ask penetrating questions helped to clarify my feelings, clarify my thinking, and allowed me to think outside the box.

 

For any church or church leader considering working with VOCA, make it happen.  Hopefully, your church will make an investment in you.  It’s worth it, and don’t wait.  Dive in—I wish that I had done this earlier in ministry and more often.”

—Tracy Troxel, Senior Pastor, Stone Hill Church of Princeton
