Title

Grief in the Loss of a Pastor: Implications for Interim Ministry

Description

A dissertation submitted to the Faculty in candidacy for the degree of Doctor of Ministry. Electronic PDF document. 123 pages.
This study presents research in three churches which had suffered the loss of a pastor. Although each church is unique in size and composition, as well as in the circumstances surrounding the pastor's departure, the common element of grief is present. Personal interviews with church leaders elicited various expressions of sadness in the loss of their pastor. With learnings related to grief resulting from death and separation, application is then made to the loss of a significant other, a pastor. Biblical and theological references are included. Recommendations for dealing with this grief during an interim period follow.
