The experience of hundreds of congregations and their leaders confirms that what is done in this transitional period greatly influences the formation of a solid ministry team with the new pastor and congregation. The two-day training provides effective tools that can be used by both a traditional or a transitional interim pastor, as well as the pastor search committee.
