    Intentional Interim Ministry Training (Combined) Virtual

    9 am - 4 pmOn-line

    This 5-day course combines the Interim Ministry 1 (the work of the leader) and the Interim Ministry 2 (the work of the congregation) courses.  It is designed for those individuals who have already discerned God’s call to interim ministry. Interim Ministry Training focuses on the work of the interim minister as he/she leads a congregation through the time of transition, as well as on the work of the congregation during this journey.

    To enhance the learning experience, participants are required to complete six pre-work assignments.  Class begins on Monday at 9:00 AM (ET) and ends at 4:00 PM on Friday.  Fieldwork starts about 30 days after the last day of class and consists of five conference calls conducted in approximately 30-day intervals.  Fieldwork expectations are explained in-depth during the training event.  Note: Applicants who previously completed IM1, and who now wish to complete their training in order to be recognized as an Intentional Interim Minister, can join the on-going class at 8:30 AM on Wednesday and will finish at 4:00 PM on Friday

    This is a virtual course.  The course consists of a 5-day classroom experience followed by individual fieldwork.  The fieldwork entails completing a project related to one of the focus points covered in class, and participating in a series of teleconferences.
