Converting a personal facebook page to professional page...with issues

I want to convert a personal facebook page to a professional one. The issue is: the personal page already has a group created under it. What happens to it?

I am taking over the neglected facebook page for our church. Currently we have a personal page that uses "X Episcopal" as the first name and "Church" as the last name. That personal account has created a page called "X Episcopal Church." Some of the friends of the personal page are fans of the other page, but not all. Some of the fans of the church page are friends with the personal page, but not all. (insert mental ven diagram here)
I'd like to consolidate these two groups, so converting the personal page into a professional one seems like a good idea. I know this process turns your "friends" into "fans" but what happens to a page that you already created? How do I make sure the current fans we have end up being fans of the new church page? In other words. I don't want two "X Episcopal Church" pages out there but I also don't want to lose any fans. Any ideas?
