Need an Interim Pastor?


Every church eventually needs an interim pastor, a transitional leader. There are many interim pastors out there.


I have twenty years’ experience in large churches of 1,000 or more. For ten years I was the executive pastor, managing the largest Presbyterian church in San Diego.


My Doctorate from Fuller Seminary focused on addressing church challenges before they become a public conflict.


I’m old enough to have the respect of most members of your congregation and, I’m young enough to have the energy and insight to keep and grow the next generation.


I have experience in managing conflict, senior leadership management, staff development, tactical and strategic planning, problem-solving, leading change, and fundraising.


I preach every week unless I'm sharing the pulpit with others.


Regardless of other forms of ministry, I believe in being a local church pastor first.


Your church may be my next home base.

Every organization should

  • Understand its past

  • Hold on to the best parts of its identity

  • Surrender whatever holds it back

  • Be ready for its future
