Ministry in Times of Church Discernment and Closure:
Webinar for Intentional Interim Ministers
Presenters: Rev. Gail Irwin and Rev. Jonathan New

Watch a replay of this webinar originally held on Thursday, September 28, 2017


Serving a church discerning closure is a significant, challenging and unique experience for an intentional interim minister. This online presentation will discuss the theological foundations for helping a church re-shape or close and the unique role of the interim in this process.  The webinar will also present resources for this ministry; including: Toward the Better Country: Church Closure and Resurrection, and Living Legacy: Church Legacy and Closure Resource.

The webinar presenters were Reverend Gail Irwin, author of Toward the Better Country and Reverend Jonathan New, Associate Conference Minister for Stewardship & Financial Development, MA Conference. Both have interim ministry experience.  Reverend David Schoen, Minister for Church Closure and Legacy (CB&LF) will host this online Zoom webinar being sponsored by Association of United Church of Christ Intentional Interim Ministers (AUCCIIM); UCC Ministerial Excellence, Support and Authorization (MESA); United Church Funds (UCF) and UCC Church Building and Loan Fund (CB&LF).
