Calling a pastor can be a special time for reflection, assessment and growth in the life of a congregation. This time of transition is an opportunity for the Congregation Council to lead by example, through mutual encouragement, trust in God, unity and spiritual growth. Prayer, Bible study, and regular devotions keep the leadership spiritually centered as it guides the congregation in assessing the current congregational strengths and weaknesses, creating a vision for mission and ministry, and calling a new pastor.
