A period of interim ministry poses unique challenges and opportunities for both congregations and ministers. Much more than a caretaker ministry, an interim ministry can help a congregation navigate and get the most out of a time between settled ministers. In this practical and insightful volume, interim ministers and other congregational leaders provide a road map for a transformative and fulfilling interim period.
First published in 2013, In the Interim quickly became an indispensable resource for congregations, their leaders, interim ministers, and all involved in transitional ministry. In its second edition, editors Barbara Child and Keith Kron and contributors retain all of the practical strategies and keen insight of the original while also examining how interim ministry is adapting to a rapidly changing world. Included are updates on the advent of developmental and jump start transition ministries.
