Insight 221: FaithSoaring Churches Make Wise Use of an Interim Period
Congregations seeking to transform make use of the interim period between pastors. They do not rush out to secure the next pastor. They take their time. They secure an interim pastor who can provide solid spiritual and strategic leadership. They seek to renew their commitment to a Christ-centered, faith-based journey.
The interim time allows for the rediscovery of the natural leadership present within the congregation. They reaffirm signs of health and strength. They look for a pastor who has the gifts, skills, and preferences to lead them forward into the future in ways congruent with God’s vision for the congregation.
