Is Interim Ministry Right for You?

Sign Up for One of IPM’s 2024 Training Events!

Are you curious about the role of an interim pastor? Do you wonder if you might be a good fit for the role?

Many pastors call interim pastoring their “encore career.” The idea of leading churches for a limited period, one that has a definitive beginning and end, is appealing.

For most pastors, though, interim ministry is also a calling.

Leading churches through transition to the next season of ministry takes a seasoned pastor. One who can help churches navigate hurt, instability, and uncertainty. One who provides hope and care in the face of discouragement. They know the pain churches face and are ready to use their experience to help churches thrive.

Do you want to learn more about the unique and valuable role of an interim pastor?

Join one of our eight one-day Online Training Events to find out more.


The Event: What to Expect

During the one-day event, led by Dr. Tom Harris, IPM President and one of the leading authorities on interim ministry in the evangelical world, you’ll hear from IPM pastors and coaches, as well as other key influencers who have been positively impacted by interim ministry.
