Interim Ministry Consulting

Interim Ministry Consulting

Most faith communities today are experiencing an extraordinary need for transformation. Sometimes the need arises from a specific event within the community such as the departure of a long-term ministry leader, a crisis within the community, or a sudden change in the social context. Other times, the need arises slowly, as internal and external changes create the need for a renewed understanding of purpose and mission. One way of intentionally addressing the opportunity for transition is to work with a ministry consultant who can lead a process of evaluation, reflection and planning.
