This Training will help participants learn about:

  • The five developmental tasks of interim ministry
  • The five process tasks for interim ministers
  • Discerning the call to serve as an interim minister
  • The ethics of interim ministry
  • How to start and finish interims
  • Working with the denominational judicatory while serving as an interim
  • Helping the members of a congregation solve their problems without feeling the interim pastor has to solve the problems singlehandedly 

Who Should Attend?

This workshop is for any pastor (Disciples of Christ or United Church of Christ) interested in serving as an interim minister in Ohio.  The period of transition that occurs while a congregation searches for a settled pastor can be an especially fruitful time.  It is during this time that the church has an important opportunity to do the work of reevaluating, refocusing, healing, and “cleaning up.”  The interim time is much more than just a period of biding time; it is a time of making valuable preparations that can strengthen the church’s ministry for many years to come.  If you have an interest in helping congregations in transition, this workshop can be your first step in developing that ministry.
