Interim Ministry Network


new beginning


The Interim Ministry Network strengthens the spiritual and organizational health of the congregation by equipping and supporting those who lead during times of transition.


As a result of work of the Interim Ministry Network, church bodies are stronger because they have effectively managed transition and are better able to share with their members and society God’s love that brings hope and joy in times of change.

Core Values

  • Providing praxis-oriented education and training for clergy and lay leaders
  • Providing learning experiences that reflect professionalism, excellence, and innovation
  • Seeking and affirming inclusivity in living out the mission
  • Strengthening faith communities
  • Building healthy relationships among colleagues and within faith communities

For over three decades, the Interim Ministry Network – IMN has dedicated itself to the health and wellness of church congregations. The wellness of churches is influenced by three kinds of learned leadership skills – prevention of unhealthy practices before they take root, maintenance of congregational health during times of stress or change and restorative care when it is required.

IMN has a skilled and proven faculty who are practicing ministers and rabbis with years of interfaith education experience. It offers regularly scheduled training programs, dedicated and specific news sources, an annual international conference, an advanced skills designation program (PTS and Church Consultants) and membership in a professional association. IMN provides clergy, administrators and lay leaders with contemporary education and training to help them avoid or reduce the severity of unhealthy practices, manage the effects of change and restore spiritual wellness where it has been lost.
