IMN Virtual Support Groups

As an transitional leader, you may be in an area where you have access to local denominational support groups – and others are in areas where they are isolated from colleagues. With the wonders of technology – specifically Zoom, IMN has built a community to connect transitional pastors/leaders, for exchange of ideas and encouragement. The support groups are free to IMN members and are offered through the guidance of the IMN Member Support Team. 


  • Connect interim pastors to support one another by sharing intentional interim experiences
  • Develop relationships among IMN members
  • Problem solve together
  • Share experience
  • Mutually support one another emotionally, spiritually, vocationally
  • Lessen isolation

General information:

  • Groups are ecumenical
  • Groups are co-hosted by a pair of IMN members
  • Groups meet for 1 ½ hours, once a month
  • IMN staff schedule the monthly calls with Zoom and send each member of the group an email with the log-on information for the next meeting
  • Members need to have internet access and technology (computer, tablet, phone) to access video meetings. (Later, we may begin a voice-only meeting, if there is demand to meet without seeing each other)
  • Each group is limited to ten IMN members, so that all may participate in the conversation
  • There is no charge to participate in IMN Virtual Support Groups
  • Members are expected to participate in each call, unless they contact a co-host in advance

IMN is now inviting members to join the next offerings of Virtual Support Groups. While we will continue to accept members to the groups, once a group has started, any requests will be held until new VSGs are announced.

  • Choose the VSG that fits your schedule. 
  • Then add to cart and then check out. 
  • The shopping cart will collect information about you. 
  • There is no payment required.
  • Make sure you keep a copy of your registration.

We will respond with confirmation that you have a spot in the VSG you chose. IMN Virtual Support Groups are video-conference gatherings of people who share common experiences, situations, problems or conditions. On these calls, members offer and receive practical and emotional support related to the practice of transitional/interim ministry.
