Statement about Interim Ministry

This is an exciting and essential time in the life of your congregation!  As an interim minister, my particular skills and interests emphasize: congregational growth and transition, organizational development and staff cohesion and focus.  I consider the essence of this time of transition the identification of your congregation's core mission and vision. 

As a complement to my Ministerial Record, I hope this website is a useful introduction to my ministry.

The Core Tasks of an Interim Minister


Recording of Previous Sermon


Sample of New Member Class

I offer these materials as an example of some of the work that I have done in preparing adult faith development curricula.  It was developed specifically for use with my current congregation, and is not meant to suggest a required model for how I would offer new member classes in a future settings. These three sessions would be presented as a three-part pathway to membership series.  The first two on consecutive weeks and the third a month later as follow up.
