Joining IMA is not just about what this organization can do for you. At the heart of transitional ministry is service and we know you have a servant’s heart with a deep desire. Being a part of IMA is making your gifts and skills for transitional ministry available to the larger church and helping to promote and expand this gift.
IMA offers a free database available for trained transitional (interim) pastors to post a profile with experience, training and availability. This database is searchable by ELCA Bishops and Synod Staff responsible for identifying leadership for transitional needs in their synods. To place a profile on the Database, please fill out the information on our Contact Page. Once received, a profile will be set up and email sent with invitation to upload your profile. This database is for trained interim's only. Please indicate your training so it can be verified. Once verified you will receive an email with connection info.
Your membership dues help IMA not only to provide the Database and Website but also to grow in our offerings of support and promotion of interim ministry throughout the ELCA.. Please join and help us extend the reach and impact of trained transitional (interim) ministry throughout the ELCA.
