Continuing Education

National Association of Lutheran Interim Pastors sponsors educational opportunities of interest to intentional interim pastors including:

  • Basic Education for the Practice of Intentional Interim Ministry
    This course is designed to connect you with your synod, district or judicatory and offers a foundation for working with congregations facing important issues during pastoral transition. The program is designed in three sequential phases over six months: a residential week, field work in a parish or other ministry site, and a concluding residential week. The course is offered annually at Luther Seminary, St. Paul, Minnesota and Concordia Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri. Classes are scheduled periodically at other venues such as Livermore, California and Easton, Pennsylvania.
  • Continuing Interim Education — 12 & 36 hour events
    Specialized and advanced interim ministry courses are offered periodically. Check the NALIP website for descriptions and schedules.

Interim Ministry Network offers education and training for intentional interim pastors.

The Lombard Mennonite Peace Center has a feast of helpful workshops.
