Many churches without pastors need transitional pastors with experience, training and ministry gifts that assure high-quality transitional leadership. Transitional pastors are prepared to lead churches through smooth, rough and crisis transitions. They may serve effectively as a preacher, pastor and consultant.
The skills that a transitional pastor needs include:
- Spiritual discernment
- Conflict management
The average time without a pastor in a Baptist church is 9-18 months. Transitional pastors must commit to remaining with the church until they call a permanent pastor.
