Interim Ministry Network

new beginning

Welcome to IMN

The Interim Ministry Network

All Interim Pastors are Transition Pastors
but not all Transition Pastors are Interim Pastors

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.

What is Transitional Ministry?

TRANSITIONAL MINISTRY is ministry during a time of transition that involves training, task and time.

  • TRANSITION is the process of coming to terms with change.
  • TRAINING prepares the leader to address the need of the congregation and to guide them as they work on their transition tasks.
  • TASK is the work that a congregation does in response to the change event.
  • TIME is defined for the work on the tasks of transition. The time limits are clearly specified in the agreement the leader makes with  the congregation before beginning the work.
