Interim Training for Program Professionals

Twice a year, the UUA Office of Church Staff Finances offers a six-week, online Interim Training for Religious Professionals.

Staff will find this training useful if:

  • They are serving, or preparing to serve, in an interim capacity
  • They are, or will be, working with an interim minister
  • They want to look at their current work and context with fresh eyes, especially during times of change

Interim Training:

  • Introduces a variety of leadership and change models
  • Equips staff in the essential areas of congregational systems and staff relations
  • Grounds staff in the tasks of the interim process
  • Provide practical tools and resources for interim work

The next training begins in late February, with an application deadline of February 10, 2017.
