Intentional Interim Ministry

Purpose: a healthy church


It’s not about “filling in time between pastors”…
it’s about helping a local church grow in health
and build a foundation for increasingly effective ministry.



Depending on the needs of the individual local church, intentional interim ministry is considered intentional in the sense that it seeks to accomplish a specific purpose in the church in which the interim pastor serves.  The ministry style (the style and level of intensity) depends on the needs of the local church.

 3 kinds of intentional ministry




Intentional Interim ministry may involve focusing one or more of the following issues, depending on the specific local church setting:

  • Leadership development
  • Vision casting
  • Strategic planning
  • Problem solving
  • Conflict resolution
  • Peacemaking
