In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins and Barnabas Piper talk with H.B. Charles Jr., Pastor of Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church of Jacksonville and author of On Preaching and On Pastoring. During this conversation, they discuss the necessity of succession planning in a church, the importance of prayer and the preaching of the word, and H.B. Charles Jr. shares his personal succession story.
“When people hear the word succession, they think about the senior level, but we’re really talking about every level.”
“I have a burden for this issue because I saw it in my own church.”
“To be honest, part of the reason why a church would call a 17 year old is because they went 18 months without a pastor.”
“It impressed upon me a burden that churches really have to take seriously the issue of succession.”
“You must be planning leadership for the generations to come.”
“Faithfulness to our calling is to always be in the process of raising up the next generation of leaders who will take the baton and carry the work forward.”
“Leadership is earned over time.”
“Honest conversations with leadership are important for succession.”
“I’m trying to preach strategically and pray diligently.”
“It is not fair to give someone responsibility without giving them authority.”
