Vines need a trellis like leaders need mentors. In order to thrive both need a structure of support.

Vine keepers learn to craft trellises suitable to the climate. And the wise leader seeks a trustworthy coach to help them navigate a the ins and outs of any new environment.

Interim By Design offers leadership coaching to support interim pastors, search committees, and others who guide the church during leadership transition.

IBD understands interim leaders. We offer complimentary coaching to clients as needs arise. Consider this your invitation to join us!  50-minute coaching appointments are complimentary up to three sessions a year.
