Leader Shifting can be glorious or gruesome, successful or fraught with mistakes that result in devastated lives. Success requires understanding basic relational and authority dynamics, then following well-thought out steps for a smooth succession.

This book will be most beneficial for small to medium-sized churches that have some freedom in how successors are chosen and especially for churches that recognize the five-fold ministry. However, all churches and church leaders should be planning for succession, and those plans should be activated as soon as possible.
