Effective Transitional Leadership Workshop

The state of the world is such that very few ministries can declare that they are NOT in transition in some way. Transitional ministry is not only for officially declared Interim Ministries, it occurs in a variety of ways in numerous contexts. The Interim Ministry Network is now offering workshops in Effective Transitional Leadership for anyone, not just those involved with declared Interim Ministries.
