Come to the TWELFTH Annual
Interim Ministry Specialists Association
2019 TIIMSA GATHERING
“For Just Such a Time as This”
OUR 2019 CHURCH = TRANSITION!
The anxious and challenging times we are in cry out for TRANSFORMATIONAL LEADERSHIP that companions the in-transition church with God’s mission and vision as we embrace the future. Continuing Education hours are available.
MARCH 26-28, 2019
in Nashville, Tennessee
(Upper Room Chapel and
West End United Methodist Church)
The focus of Gathering 2019 will be leading Organizational Strategic Planning for vitality and long-range success in “just such a time as this.” So, whether you serve as a Transitional Intentional Interim Ministry Specialist or a settled pastor in a local church, judicatory, some place in between or beyond, your transformational leadership skills will be honed by two nationally known career educators (United Methodists!), David Olson and Nancy Bradley. Their take-home processes are dynamic, creative, hands-on, interactive and effective! A panel that includes bishops, GBHEM staff, and others from across the connection will reflect on United Methodist TIIMS current practices and future trajectories. AND, the TIIMS community/network is an additional bonus. Download and mail in the pdf form or register online today!
The Gathering begins Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. with a tour of the UPPER ROOM CHAPEL AND CHRISTIAN ART MUSEUM, followed by a 7:30 p.m. Reception at the Host Hotel (Best Western Plus Airport Hotel). Wednesday begins with check-in at 8:30 a.m. and Worship at 9:00 a.m. in WEST END UNITED METHODIST CHURCH.
