Resources for pastoral transitions
The LBA has produced a workbook to provide churches with a framework to manage the transition from the time when a minister indicates that she/he is leaving to the selection and induction of a new pastor. The workbook is entitled 'When a Pastor leaves ... Enabling pastoral transitions in the local church.'
Alongside 'When a Pastor leaves ...' the LBA has also developed the 'Interim Moderator training pack'. This workbook is designed to help people prepare for and reflect on their role as moderators for churches in pastoral transition.

When churches are asked to assess a call to ministry ...
When anyone believes that they have a call to accredited Baptist ministry, before being interviewed by the Association Ministerial Recognition Committee they will need to be commended by their local church. The LBA has produced guidelines to help churches take this process seriously.
The guidelines are available as a pdf document and can be downloaded by clicking here.
