An Interim Minister, sometimes called a TIIMS (Transitional-Intentional Interim Ministry Specialist), is an experienced, mature, United Methodist pastor trained for the specialized ministry of the interim time. He/she is appointed by the bishop “for a specific length of time, established in advance” to lead the congregation in a time of healing and renewal as its wounds heal and it prepares for a new day in its life with a new pastor, yet to be appointed.
The Intentional Growth Center at Lake Junaluska is the pioneer in Transitional-Intentional Interim Ministry Seminar which continues to offer the training at its finest. IGC is recognized by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry as a TIIMS provider. In the past 16 years IGC has conducted more than 60 training seminars, preparing nearly 700 United Methodist Pastors for this ministry.
