Effective interim ministry depends on strong partnership between the interim minister and congregation. Lay leaders of congregations preparing for such a transition will value the expert guidance provided in this book, written by over a dozen experienced interim pastors. What is interim ministry all about? What needs to happen during the interim? What should leaders and members expect from the interim pastor and themselves during this transition? What other resources are available for congregations?

"This book is just the right resource for leaders in congregations anticipating or going through a pastoral transition, for clergy who want to understand interim ministry better, for anyone who loves the church of Jesus Christ and wants the best possible leadership for its ife and mission." -Davida Foy Crabtree

"Hundreds of disastrous mismatches of congregations with new pastors might have been avoided had this book been read and taken to heart by the leaders involved--lay and ordained alike." -Gaylord Noyce
