Interim religious education is a transitional leadership program available to our
Unitarian Universalist congregations. Since 2005, trained interim religious educators
have served congregations for temporary periods in an effort to guide congregations through an intentional process which leads to a healthy religious education future. This website provides tools for interim religious educators, transitional religious leaders, and the leaders of congregations who find themselves in the midst of such transitions. We trust that religious leaders who are facing religious education transitions will find useful information here. This website is made possible by a LREDA Twenty-first Century Grant.
The next phase of this project is a printed publication on transitional religious leadership. The book will be funded by a grant from the Unitarian Sunday School Society and is anticipated to come out next year. It is intended as a unique resource on interim work, specifically as it relates to religious education and will benefit religious professionals and lay leaders in congregations engaged in transitional ministry.
