Change while you can

The first part of Temporary Shepherds describes a prevalent problem for which Intentional Interim Ministry is a wonderful solution.

The problem: churches are slow to change, and slower to admit what change they undergo. This results in churches that are shunned by the American public as dinosaurs incapable of helping 21st people.

The solution: when churches are in between pastors, there is a short period of openness to change. A skilled and caring Interim Pastor can use this time to comfort the grieving church, resolve a few long-standing conflicts, and help the church re-vision itself for fresh ministry.
