Intentional Interim Training Seminar Oct. 22-25

Date Posted: 9/24/2018

Intentional Interim Ministry training is a three-phase event led by two experienced trainers for up to twenty participants. Phase I begins with a four-day gathering to introduce concepts, tools and techniques used in short-term, intentional, pastoral leadership. A thirty-day interval follows during which participants will obtain and review the General Board of Global Ministries “Church Profile” and “Neighborhood Profile” pertaining to their current appointments as well as complete a Birkman© questionnaire. 
The group reconvenes four to six weeks later for Phase II which includes a Birkman© de-brief, and training in the Discipline ¶213 assessment process.  Additionally, participants are taught how to do CPR – how to write a “Change Process Report.” 
The participants return to their ministry settings for a six month mentored practicum during which they will initiate the assessment process and program changes required by the Discipline.   They will write about two of their experiences, at least, in CPR form.  During Phase III, each participant presents two CPRs for group analysis and discussion.

Candidates for IIM training must be recommended by bishops or superintendents before enrollment and Districts or Annual Conferences are encouraged to underwrite the cost of this training to demonstrate support of those willing to serve in this specialized ministry.
