Welcome to Interim Pastor Ministries!
Tom Harris, Executive Director
HI, I’m Tom Harris. My story is that in 1997, I interviewed for Pastor at a Tucson, AZ church. During that interview, I discovered that this church was struggling with unresolved issues. I recommended they slow down their search process and find an interim pastor to help them prepare for their future. They took me up on my proposal and called me to be their interim pastor. This first interim pastorate led me on an amazing journey, serving as Intentional Interim Pastor in nine churches in AZ, NC, CA, NE, GA and MI over fifteen years. Today I am the Executive Director of Interim Pastor Ministries.
Interim Pastor Ministries is a missional network of Interim Pastors who serve churches in pastoral transition.
Our goal is to serve, support and strengthen churches during their transitional season.
We build a bridge from one pastor to the next with kingdom effectiveness and impact in view.
Interim Pastor Ministries (IPM) is a proven ministry. We were begun in 1990. Rev. Turner Tallaksen and Dr. Arnie Conrad have preceded me as Executive Directors. In 23 years we have served over 850 churches. We have 130 quality, evangelical Pastors on our staff. At any one time forty to fifty churches are utilizing the service of one of our interim, staff pastors.
If you are pastor seeking interim ministry or a church seeking an interim pastor, you have come to the right place.
