The Succession Journey Seminar

For those who need a deep dive into the various topics and components of succession, the Succession Journey Seminar is a perfect vehicle. Information from a variety of sources and disciplines is mixed with times of discussion and self discovery. Each seminar features a video chat with two leaders who are currently or previously completed a succession process.

Topics covered during the seminar include:

  • Personal Experiences with pastoral transition
  • Definitions of terms
  • Types of succession
  • Leader’s resistance to succession  (how do we know it’s time?)
  • A biblical survey of succession
  • Three unique biblical examples
  • Corporate succession
  • Competencies
  • Church succession
  • Leadership pipelines, pools, and benches
  • Models of change management
  • Insiders vs. Outsiders
  • “What if” scenarios for each participant

Seminar attendees receive the book Next, by Vanderbloemen and Bird, a seminar booklet and information about ongoing succession development and support.

We really appreciated the seminar and the effort that Randal Smith went to in presenting it. It was great to consider the issues in such a well thought out and Scriptural format. And it was beneficial in being together with others who are going through the same journey… Thanks a heap for this well done time! It met a need!

The whole topic is a great one and a big eye opener insofar as so many actually do not create a nice plan or even have a succession or exit strategy… I like the materials you shared when we last met. There were facts, figures and insight that I found very valuable. Thanks for your service to the Kingdom.
