Quick Overview:

If you’re one of the thousands of pastors and church staff members changing ministry positions this year, here is sound advice, based on research and experience, for navigating the contemporary ministry employment maze. The book addresses all aspects of ministry transition---spiritual, emotional, familial, and especially the many practical considerations involved.
 
For most pastors and church staff members, gone are the days of serving at the same church for twenty or thirty years. What’s more, the landscape of pastoral hiring has changed, with the advent of more sophisticated search committees, the Internet, and professional search firms. But the fine art of changing churches or moving to a new career isn’t something most of us learned in seminary. Whether you are searching for your first position or are a seasoned veteran wrestling with if, when, and how to move on, Moving On, Moving Forward will help you navigate the ins and outs of the ministry employment maze. Based on research with nearly 200 pastors who themselves have gone through transitions in ministry, this book uniquely addresses the needs of people in ministry. It deals with the crucial and sometimes painful emotional and familial issues involved in ministry transition. And it is immensely practical and informed by many real-life examples. Topics covered include dealing with search committees, writing a letter of resignation, preparing a resume, negotiating compensation, and more. Includes charts and worksheets.
