About Transition Ministry

Transition Ministry is the term used in the Episcopal Church when congregations are in periods of transition between clergy leaders. ┬áCongregations are said to be “in transition” from when the Rector or Priest-in-Charge (PIC) announces her/his plans to leave the congregation until the next Rector/PIC is installed.

Activities during a transition phase might include creating opportunities for leave-taking with the departing Rector/PIC, discernment of the congregation’s needs and desires for clergy leadership in the near and distant future, the calling and selection of an Interim Priest, a Rector/PIC search process, and/or discernment about non-traditional models of leadership and parish organization. In the recent past, Transition Ministry was referred to as “Deployment”.
