LifeandLeadership.com Summary

This is a good collection of articles on all the dynamics of intentional interim ministry. The chapters are very informative, and the appendices list a number of resources for further help. The authors prefer the method of Appreciative Inquiry (AI), but one could use different methods and still profit from this text.

From the Publisher

Transition is the word we use to describe the time following significant change. In congregations, that change might be the departure of the pastor, a catastrophe such as Hurricane Katrina or 9/11, or simply the changes caused by growth. Transition calls for clergy with special training to respond to the needs generated by the special time. Task, training, and time limit are the hallmarks of transitional ministry. Trained intentional interim clergy must have the skill and experience to lead congregations during transition.
