Members have knowledge, expertise, stories, successes, and challenges to share about working effectively with congregations during times of transition. The IMN Member Support Team offers a new opportunity for IMN Members to be in community with one another.
The IMN Virtual Café is a monthly opportunity to share a conversation about a transitional topic. Open to settled clergy, interim clergy, lay leaders, transitional clergy, and judicatories. Using Zoom video conferencing, or your telephone, you will be in a topic-specific 90-minute conversation with your colleagues and a host with experience on that topic.
