Additional Information

Transitional ministry can be tremendously helpful for congregations in times of change, and yet, to be successful today transitional ministers and churches need to take into account the major changes in the religious landscape. From the decline of mainline churches to the rise of those who don’t identify with any religious tradition, the religious scene has changed dramatically since transitional ministry began three decades ago, and to remain vital today, the practice of transitional ministry must change as well.

This book provides transitional ministers and congregations with essential information on re-thinking transitional ministry in ways that take the current religious climate into account. Ten experienced authors—including seasoned practitioners of transitional ministry and those who oversee transitional ministry denomination-wide—propose new ways to approach transitional ministry today. Chapters address practical theology, leadership, specialized interim situations, renewal during interim time, alternative models of transitional ministry, and more. Essays address a range of diverse churches in size, racial/ethnic background, and location.

Transitional Ministry Today highlights how creative and cutting-edge ministry can be done during the “in-between-time” through creative thinking and practice in the face of new realities

I wish I had read this book years ago --even though I was not interested in interim or transitional ministry.

If you are a minister that serves on certain denominational/regional committees, this book will provide insights into some of the other congregational contexts in which other members of your committee serve.
This book was a good overview of the work one needs to do with churches moving in a new direction. Most of it though is pretty obvious.
I highly recommend this book to people who have been trained as intentional interim ministers. The writers raise some very viable questions about how to best assist churches in the transitional process. I know there are those persons who have been trained in certain processes that get very nervous about discussing adaptability and flexibility in the tool kit of the interim minister. This book will raise some important questions for how we navigate the future in helping churches with the transitions they face.
