Who Should Follow a Founding Pastor?

The Lewis Center for Church Leadership conducted research across the United Methodist Church about “second pastors,” those who follow founding pastors. This project was commissioned by the North Texas Conference, and Jim Ozier from that conference does training on this topic. You may find the report at Findings about Pastors Who Follow Founding Pastors.
