Interim Ministry Specialists Association

of The United Methodist Church

The mission of TIIMSA is to champion the specialized
transitional, intentional, interim ministry
in the United Methodist Church. 

The vision of TIIMSA is to be the recognized resource organization within the UMC
to equip leadership for ministry settings with special transitional needs
to better access and leverage the power of Christ’s grace
to become vibrant agents of transformation in their communities.

To live into our vision, we will:  

  • Recruit, train, and develop TIIM Specialists.  
  • Advocate at all levels for the need to utilize TIIM Specialists more widely and effectively.  
  • Partner with bishops and their cabinets to appoint TIIM Specialists by raising awareness of TIIM Specialists for the benefit of local congregations.  
  • Educate lay leaders of local congregations about the TIIM Specialists’ practices, protocols, and processes.  (Revised July 7, 2019)

In this two-minute video, Bishop Janice Riggle Huie, now retired, explains the importance of intentional interim ministry to the churches of the Texas Annual Conference.
