  1. Interim Ministry Network John Parker, Gail, and I participated in Basic Education from the Interim Ministry Network 1998-1999. There were two weeks of class instruction and six months of fieldwork. This was eight years before we started interim ministry. I took a refresher course from the Interim Ministry Network, in March 2007. The IMN was started in 1981 to teach individuals how to lead groups (churches) in managing transition. They work with all religious groups. I found the principles I learned helpful during my last eight years of full-time work, as well as in interim ministry.
