Introduction to IIM Ministry
The “Introduction to Intentional Interim Ministry” workshop is designed for those that are considering IIM as a part-time ministry when they retire. Attendance at an introductory workshop, commitment to this ministry, and District-sponsored continuing education are required to be recognized as a Michigan District Intentional Interim Minister.
There is a $55 fee to attend this conference, which will include 2 books and a manual. (Lodging will be covered by the district.)
IIM Continuing Education
What do Pastors, and particularly Intentional Interim Pastors, have in common with explorers Louis and Clark? If you haven’t read Ted Bolsinger’s book, Canoeing the Mountains, you may not have a clue. But one of the keys is a well-defined mission that is “owned by the leader.” And another is the requirement of “self-differentiation” as a leader for any group of explorers. (Ministry in today’s world is definitely “off the map.”) By registering for this Continuing Education conference, you will receive this important ministry book. You will also receive LCMS Texas District President Mike Newman’s new book, Gospel DNA. (This too is a great read!) You will be expected to read both volumes before attending the conference.
There is NO CHARGE to register.
