Promoting the New Preacher in Town
Pastors have many responsibilities in front of them after moving into to a new church, and your congregation can provide opportunities and help ease the transition by facilitating connections with the local community.
Ways you can help your pastor:
· Introduce them to public and community leaders.
· Ask church members in civic clubs to take the new pastor to one of their meetings.
· Be sure to introduce them to other clergy in the area and offer information about regional ecumenical activities and associations.
· Send notices to local media outlets with background information about the new pastor.
