At the age of sixty-eight, Garry Tracy began to feel an unrest in his spirit to initiate the process of pastoral succession. As a pastor grows older, the importance of a graceful exit becomes paramount. It speaks of sterling character, a vision greater than self, and an unshakeable faith that the church is in good hands—God’s hands. Leaders who exit gracefully exemplify what is best for the church. Churches that plan for a gradual transition are equally important. This book tells the story of the author’s graceful exit and includes wisdom from other incoming and outgoing pastors based on their pastoral transitions.
