Right Start seeks to:

  • Help pastors make a successful exchange of the baton in the “change-over zone.”
  • Ensure pastors receive information they need on practical matters including pension, health insurance and conference moving policy.
  • Convey the importance of clergy ethics in the transition process.
  • Prepare pastors to take the baton in a new appointment.
