Nurturing interim ministry

in today’s church.



I am an intentional interim pastor who delights in helping churches and organizations refine their mission and seek new leadership. I feel a deep call to serve congregations and clients in the midst of change.

Drawing on years of personal experience, Interim by Design (IBD) provides guidance, resources and support for churches, pastors and ministry staff in leadership transition. IBD understands the unique needs of organizations in leadership transition. This ministry nurtures vital conversations with thought leaders, builds  community among colleagues, and offers professional coaching. 

Interim By Design believes interim ministry seasons are vital to church health and may be approached with joy.

to show that this all-surpassing power
is from God and not from us."
