Intentional Interim Minister

Reverend Michael Poole


As "Intentional Interim," I seek to serve a congregation in two primary ways: First, as pastor to the people - preaching, teaching, and providing care for the congregation. Second, I serve as primary resource for a church-elected transition leadership team. The transition team's task is to guide the congregation through a thoughtful and prayerful process of self-discovery. As "Intentional Interim" I assist the church through the entire journey. Expectations, tasks, and terms for the role of Intentional Interim are clearly identified and agreed upon early in the relationship. Anticipated time for completion of the process is 12-18 months. I have served Virginia Baptist congregations for 31 years. Cindy and I have two sons and five grandchildren. All live in the Richmond metro area. 

“I look forward to getting to know the saints at Emmaus Baptist Church and helping them prepare to identify and call the next Senior Pastor.”
