Phase3_Training

United Methodist Intentional Interim Ministry training will prepare you to be a transitional specialist!

Transitional Intentional Interim Specialist Training (TIIMS) is designed to help pastors and congregations deal with the stresses of our culture in this time of uncertainty. While this training is specifically designed for those entering an interim situation (death of pastor, long pastorate, pastor leaving ministry, etc.), the training will help you deal with the everyday struggles you will find in any ministry setting. Congregations are hurting and TIIMS training is like a prescription for healing.

Transitional Intentional Interim Specialist Training is a three-phase experience spanning six months of time. Phase I is a three-day introduction to the concepts and principles of Interim Ministry where tools and techniques for this specialized ministry are presented. Phase II is a time in one’s ministry setting using some of the tools and principles learned in Phase I while being coached by a leader with whom they worked in Phase I. Phase III is a re-gathering of the group to further integrate the experiences of Phase II guided by the case studies written during Phase II. Through this training you will learn how to integrate your proven pastoral skill set with the dynamic strategies of interim ministry. You will be equipped to provide pastoral leadership in new and effective ways for congregations with special transitional needs.
