A change of pastors is a significant and sometimes traumatic event in the life of the church, and congregations often need the services of a trained intentional interim pastor who can lead them through the change and transition in a healthy manner.  Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of well-trained, intentional interim pastors available, and the need has never been greater. The course in which you are enrolled is a condensed and abbreviated course of basic education for the intentional interim pastor.  We ask that those enrolled bring a serious commitment to learning and conscientious determination to healthy practice of interim ministry.  This course is not intended to be exhaustive, but the first Introductory step in a continuous learning process.

Class will be held from Tuesday, July 10, 2018 – Thursday, July 12, 2018 at Grand View College, Des Moines, Iowa.  Class begins at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday and adjourns at 12:00 on Thursday.

Cost of the course is $150 per person, payable to LCMC, c/o Cathy Nichol (, LCMC Administrative Coordinator; full payment is required before class begins.  Travel, meals and housing are the responsibility of each participant.

Housing is available at local hotels or at Grand View University for $27/night; housing arrangements are the responsibility of each student.  Grand View contact is Nicholas Kavanaugh, Director of Conferencing | Grand View University, Student Center | 2811 E. 14th St. Des Moines, IA 50316, Office 515.263.2894 | Cell 515.250.2972 | Fax 515.263.6192.
