FENTON, MI — The average length of time a church is without a pastor in a Baptist church is 9 to 18 months. Churches without pastors can benefit greatly from hiring transitional pastors, someone with experience, training and ministry gifts that assure high-quality transitional leadership. Transitional pastors are prepared to lead churches through the loss and transition; smooth, rough or in crisis. The transitional pastors usually remain with the church until a permanent pastor is called.
