New Succession Planning resource for leaders

David Blevins, District President, has chosen the theme of ‘Passing the Baton’ for the 2019-2020 session. To support this and help members consider succession planning at Company, Battalion and District level, the District launched a new succession planning resource in October called ‘Following On’.

‘Following On’ includes why leaders need to have a succession plan, what the Bible says on the issue, the barriers to succession planning, prayer points and a self-assessment for leaders to examine themselves and how they feel about ‘Passing the Baton’.  

Speaking about the resource and his theme for the year, David said: “Succession planning has not been one of our strengths but this is an opportunity to review that – to identify those who will lead us forward and empower them to do that, not our way but their way. Let us learn from the example of Elijah who recognised the leader in Elisha, journeyed with him and then handed on the mantle.” (1 Kings 19:19-21)
