Join us for an up-close case study at Mariners Church as Senior Pastor Eric Geiger and his predecessor Kenton Beshore share their experiences and learnings from their succession journey that began in 2018.

    Episode 7: Challenges

    Episode 7: Challenges

    Leadership is challenging and leading through a succession provides leaders with a unique set of challenges for the successor such as honoring the past while creating desire for new directions, leading with your voice while not discounting the voice of the church and past, and loving the people while also charting a future course. There are challenges, of course, for the predecessor too, especially if the leader chooses to stay.

    Episode 3: The Search and the Fit

    So many questions emerge for the ministry or organization when searching for a new candidate. Internal or external candidate? Reflective of the past or the future? Search firm or internal search group? All those questions are really about finding the “right fit.” And so many questions emerge for the potential leader too: Can I follow a legend? Do I love this place and its people already? Is this a good fit for me? In this episode, Eric and Kenton discuss different options surrounding the search for a new leader and the potential risks and rewards of those options.
