This 5-day course focuses on the work of the congregation, and how the interim minister facilitates this work. There is a concentration on learning about the formation, orientation, and facilitation of a team to work on the five focus points of an interim congregation. The classroom work is followed by fieldwork, and leads to recognition as an intentional interim minister.
The conference begins on Monday, April 23, 2018 at 2:00 p.m., and will end on Friday, April 27, 2018 before noon. All sessions will take place at Camp Paron in Paron, Arkansas.
