Transition Team

Intentional Interim Ministry. Planning for the Future. Finding Immanuel’s Next Pastor.

Immanuel’s Transition Team is working closely with our Intentional Interim Pastor, Rev. Bill Marler, to discover the needs of God’s people in this place following the retirement of Pastor Mech, who served us faithfully for more than a decade. Who are we as a congregation and what is God calling us to? What are our church and school’s strengths, challenges and hopes for the future?

What is Intentional Interim Ministry?

Immanuel is taking time to evaluate, pray and gather information as we move toward Calling our next pastor, and we want YOU to be a part of of that process! If Immanuel Lutheran in Joplin is your church home, please fill out the Transition Team Survey below, and let us know what you’re thinking. (Printed copies of this survey are being shared on Sunday mornings and in our Epistle Newsletter too.)

And they devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and the fellowship, to the breaking of bread and the prayers. -Acts 2:42
