Welcome to TranstionalPastor.com
The pastor has just left your church. The period between his departure and the arrival of your next pastor is commonly referred to as the interim period. It would be better referred to as the "transitional" period. This is an excellent opportunity for a congregation--your congregation--to gain new insight relative to your church's specific calling and mission. It can be a profitable time for renewal of fellowship and ministry. With the right leadership, the "transitional" period can be a blessed time in which the congregation readies herself for her new pastor.
