LCMC Intentional Interim Ministry Training


Get Directions


A change of pastors is a significant and sometimes traumatic event in the life of the church, and congregations often need the services of a trained intentional interim pastor who can lead them through the change and transition in a healthy manner.

Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of well-trained, intentional interim pastors available, and the need has never been greater. This course is a condensed and abbreviated course of basic education for the intentional interim pastor. We ask that those enrolled bring a serious commitment to learning and conscientious determination to healthy practice of interim ministry. This course is not intended to be exhaustive, but the first Introductory step in a continuous learning process.

Our LCMC Intentional Interim Ministry Training will be taught by Pastors Steve Lien and Steve Abend, who have completed training with IMN and NALIP respectively.

Class will be held in the Principal Financial Group Conference Rooms A & B of the Grand View University Student Center

The cost to attend is $150 for the course, which must be paid in full to hold your place, plus housing (available at local hotels or at Grand View University for $27/night) and transportation.
