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.
Today IMN has over 1200 clergy, lay leaders and judicatory members. Over 300 transitional leaders are trained yearly with the IMN Fundamentals of Transitional Ministry Training program and the Annual Conference provides 3 days of seminars, workshops and keynote speakers, with the expertise in their fields of transitional ministry, practical transition applications, spirituality, human behavior, mission and vision, conflict management and many more topics are presented and explored for over 35 years.
