AUCCIIM are Ordained Ministers in the United Church of Christ who have received specialized training to assist congregations during the “in between times” of called pastors. Depending on level of experience and training they carry the designation of Intentional Interim Minister (IIM) or Professional Transition Specialist (PTS).
APIMS exists to provide support for pastors, spouses and families as well as governing bodies within the Presbyterian Church (USA) who are involved with interim ministry and to provide information regarding placement, education, certification and research in the specialized field of interim ministry.
ADIIM is the result of a gathering of Disciples of Christ Intentional Interim Ministers at the Interim Ministry Network, Inc.’s Annual Conference who, seeing the benefit of some strong regional groups and associations of Intentional Interim Ministers, decided it was time to form a denomination wide association for the benefit and betterment of all churches.Although still very much in the planning stages we have three main objectives.
- To create a network of mutual support, information sharing and prayer among all Intentional Interim Ministers in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the USA and Canada.
- To educate the church in it’s three manifestations, local, regional, and general, to the unique purpose, benefits, and uses of Intentional Interim Ministry.
- To create and maintain a set of acceptable standards for members while keeping well within the standards, procedures, and the Ministerial Code of Ethics of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in the USA and Canada. As well as those accepted practices within the Interim Ministry Network, Inc.
The Interim Ministry Association of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (IMA -ELCA) and the Interim Ministry Conference Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (IMC-LCMS), works to:
- Promote general awareness of Intentional Interim Ministry and its issues,
- Advocate high performance standards in its practice,
- Support the Church’s servants called to interim ministry
- Develop and offer programs for the training and continuing education of Lutheran Interim ministry practitioners, and
- Exercise good stewardship of resources, and pursue sources of funding.
Began its service to American Baptists in 1977 under the name, Ministers-at-Large Program. The title change came in 1997 when it expanded its vision and services. ABCIM recruits, screens and maintains a register of primarily American Baptist Pastors who have shown an interest and aptitude for interim leadership. The Area Ministers and Regional Staff, who work closest to each church, personalize our services. All the churches, that make use of the program, benefit from three outside sources: the Interim Pastor, the Regional Staff and the personnel at the national office. Such collaboration ensures support, ready responses for problem solving and the security of multiple caring ABC leaders who want the church to thrive.
