The Intentional Growth Center at Lake
Junaluska is the pioneer in Transition-Intentional Interim Ministry Training
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
12 years IGC has conducted more than 50 training seminars, preparing nearly
500-plus United Methodist Pastors for this ministry.
Minister, sometimes called a TIIMS, a 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.

Each Seminar is a three-phase event:
Phase I is a 4-day
residential event lifting up the concept of Interim ministry and introducing
tools and techniques designed for the purpose.
Phase II is six-month time
of mentoring work back home in the participant's appointment when these tools
and techniques are experienced and case studies written.
Phase III is a
3-day residential time of reviewing and sharing case studies as a means of
deepening the learnings, with limited introduction of new material.
