In this episode of the 5 Leadership Questions podcast, Todd Adkins is joined by William Vanderbloemen, the CEO and Founder of Vanderbloemen Search Group, an executive search firm serving churches, ministries and faith-based organizations. During their conversation, they discuss how to build a culture of succession in a church, the key factors that lead to a successful transition, and how to live both in the here and now, and in the next.
“Every pastor is an interim pastor.”
“At every level, there needs to be some plan for what to do next.”
“Culture eats strategy for breakfast.”
“Smart young leaders spend their early years creating options for their later years.”
“I feel pastors tend to stay too long.”
“People get addicted to their salary.”
“Pastors aren’t putting enough money in retirement, so they can’t afford to retire.”
“The guys who I see who are getting succession right are addressing it early.”
“At the end of the day, hiring is a Holy Spirit-led decision.”
“People always overestimate what they can get done in a year, and they underestimate what they can get done in 10.”
