Passing the Leadership Baton: A Winning Transition Plan for Your Ministry

Passing the Leadership Baton: A Winning Transition Plan for Your Ministry. Nashville, TN: Thomas Nelson, 2015. Pastor, if you’re not thinking and praying about your own eventual transition, you should be. On this point, I’m reminded of one of the best quotes in the book: Your own sense of comfort and contentment in your role should not be the determining factor in whether you stay longer or no. .

Passing the Baton tells stories of the author experiences with the Baltimore Police Department, beginning with the tradition of passing the nightstick, or baton. Starting with his life as a small boy, and on through high school and a stint in the Navy, George Parsons chronicles what led him to his career with the Police Department. The stories follow his exploits in the many different divisions in which he worked, including patrol districts, K-9, the Marine Unit, the Emergency Vehicle Unit and the Arson Unit.

Passing the Leadership Baton. Tom Mullins Successfully handing off the leadership baton to the next leader is essential to give our organization the best opportunity to thrive after our time of service.

Passing the Leadership Baton. A transition will be one of the greatest tests of your leadership, but it will also serve as one of the greatest rewards and testimonies of your legacy. A smooth handoff requires meticulous planning and forethought. Yet most leaders put off even thinking about leadership transition until they are faced with a situation where they have no choice but to make a change

Book by Steffen, Tom A.
Dry. Narrow wedge of what good missions is. Lacks dynamic for sure. Good info for those who need it.
This is a good read for anyone interested in church planting strategy. Obviously this includes church planters themselves, but it may also include sending Christians who want to learn more about mission strategy. Unfortunately, there are missionaries that do not allow future potential leaders to develop into leaders. This book stresses the importance of developing Christians that will be able to lead. Missionaries need to train and develop Christians in a way that allows them to be trusted with ministry.

This book does an excellent job of showing a very obvious fact about missions- planning is good. We obviously need to be dependent upon God for everything in our lives- but this doesn't mean that we wander aimlessly in our mission work with no planning or strategy (based on a Biblical worldview of course). Another excellent point that is continually covered in the book is the danger of paternalism. Never will believers or churches mature if they are never trusted to live their own Christian lives and minister on their own. A good church planter will recognize and apply this.

This is an excellent book and I don't want the following two criticisms to override the review of this book. But here are two areas that I found negative about the book. FIRST, a term that the author employs frequently in his book is `phase-out.' The relay-race is used in the book (and the title) to illustrate `phase-out.' While I personally believe that it is an important goal to develop leaders that can lead churches, I also believe that this emphasis can be detrimental if taken too far. In our efforts to `phase out' of a location, missionaries can actually communicate to the target people that they do not belong to the universal body of Christ. We work so hard at making them a `three selfs, phased-out church' that we forget that they are brothers and sisters in Christ. Love and Scripture-based living need to take precedence over planting a `textbook' church. SECOND, there is a lack of Scripture in this book. There is a small section in the second chapter entitled `The New Testament Perspective,' but it hardly comes to any convincing conclusions. I would have appreciated more of the author's strategies and ideas based on Scripture.
