Basic Training in Transitions (Residential Week)
Offering a total of 60 contact hours of continuing education plus field practice, this course consists of three inter-related components:
- Congregational Dynamics and Transitions (CDT) (live online)
- Field Practice in Transitional Leadership (FPTL) (live online + independent study)
- The Transitional Leader (in-person residential week at the seminary)
Do you desire to become a more effective transitional leader and agent of the Gospel? Are you considering intentional interim ministry as a possibility for your future?
As the world continues to change, we confront both profound grief and tantalizing possibilities. How can we better equip ourselves to guide congregations through difficult transitions and into new life?
Lutheran Transitional Ministry Association (LuTMA, formerly NALIP) touches this reality, encouraging curiosity and growth. Since 1997, we have worked with thousands of pastors and multiple partners nationwide. Our name change reflects our own ongoing process of transformation.
Taking this six-month course in “Basic Training in Transitions” will help you navigate congregational dynamics and aid you in being a transitional leader. Because all ministry is essentially transitional, this course is appropriate for both settled and interim pastors.
