The context is Grace Missionary Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee. The purpose of the research is to assist in developing a credible and viable succession plan for pastors. The hypothesis is the belief that the development and implementation of viable succession plans can avoid unnecessary problems encountered by pastors and congregations. The study will be quantitative and through questionnaires, surveys, personal interviews, and discussion with former pulpit search committee members will serve as the measurement instruments to develop models that can be utilized by churches, pastors and congregations that are serious about implementing a viable succession plan for their church.
