Ministers coming and going is a natural – yet complex – part of church life. We provide support and guidance throughout the process.
Not only is the loss of a minister acutely felt in the community but the tasks carried out by a minister leaves a significant gap.
‘Settlement’ (the word we use for looking for a new minister) is a key activity for London Baptists. We provide support and guidance throughout the process. When your minister or pastor has announced his or her departure, usually a Regional Minister will meet with the Deacons or Leadership Team of the church. We assist in the appointment of a moderator (a temporary, voluntary advisor) and offer guidance on what kinds of issues require addressing in this process.
If your minister is in the process of leaving their role, please get in touch with your Regional Minister.
