The day a pastor announces he is leaving is like losing a member of your own family. It can cause stress and grief beyond what you know or can comprehend. I know this because we just left a church we loved for a new one.
It was not only grievous for them but for us as well. Lost sleep and many tears were just the beginning of what we would experience as we transitioned out of our old church and into a new one. But the congregation is left to pick up the pieces of their loss and search for another pastor to lead their congregation.
What do you do when the pastor you love follows another calling?
