Churches of any size, age, or denomination can find themselves, at any time, without a senior pastor, or in a time of transition or crisis. For many churches, especially non-denominational churches, it is difficult to know where to turn for help.
VitalChurch Ministry is an organization dedicated to helping churches in Anaheim and the surrounding areas bring about needed change. Our team of interim pastors and church diagnostic experts have led many churches through times of conflict, transition, or unfruitfulness. We provide churches with interim pastors who, guided by the Holy Spirit, can act as agents of change, leading churches to pathways of healing, hope, and revitalization.
Interim Pastors for Anaheim, California Churches
Before your church can begin the process of getting out of its state of crisis or instability, you need to understand how it got there. We will provide you with a church health assessment, which we call our diagnostic analysis. This is an extensive assessment that involves interviews with key church leaders, as well as a customized survey of your congregation. The goal is to identify any issues that are holding your church back, or the ones that are contributing to the more obvious problems facing your church.
After the assessment has been completed, the findings will be presented to church leadership, as well as to the congregation. The presentation will also include prayerfully considered next steps for your church. One of our gifted interim pastors will then be sent to your Anaheim church for an extended period of time to help guide you through the revitalization process. If needed, our interim pastors can also help with the pastoral search process.
When the interim period is complete at your Anaheim church, VitalChurch Ministry will provide follow-up coaching for church leadership, including the new senior pastor.
Our Process of Church Revitalization
What sets VitalChurch Ministry apart from other organizations providing interim pastor services is our three-phase process that is biblically and theologically based. This process was developed by our team during their many years serving as interim pastors in churches around the world. Through it, and by the grace of God, we have seen many churches revitalized. The three phases of our process include:
Our team at VitalChurch offers so much more than just consulting or temporary preaching services for Anaheim churches. Our interim pastors treat your church like their own, working with existing leadership to bring about real and lasting change, and seeking God’s will for your church in all that we do.

Support for Anaheim, California Denominations
The services offered by VitalChurch Ministry are not just for independent churches. Denominations and denominational churches in Anaheim can also benefit from the expertise of our diagnostic experts and interim pastors.
For denominations, our team is able to provide church health assessments for a group of churches within your denomination, or for your denomination as a whole. We will work closely with your denomination’s leadership to help bring clarity to specific problems or situations through a diagnostic analysis designed specifically to get answers to the questions you have. We will then offer real, actionable solutions based on our findings.
In addition, we also support denominations by providing training for the team of interim pastors within your denomination. To be an effective interim pastor, it requires a very specific set of skills, and our team of experienced interim pastors can offer guidance and training to those pastors within your denomination who have been called to this unique and important ministry. Out team has written some of the leading resources used by interim pastors all over the world, based on their many years of experience and research.
The Right Interim Pastor for Your Anaheim Church
At VitalChurch, we are very careful and prayerful in the selection of the interim pastor who will serve your Anaheim church. We seek to match the pastoral gifts of one of our interim pastors with the specific needs of your church.
All of our interim pastors are gifted Bible teachers, who also have a desire to see struggling churches brought to places of healing and revitalization. To do this, we don’t maintain the status quo within churches. We require change where change is needed, even when the process is difficult.
There are many other organizations that can provide your church with an interim pastor to “fill the pulpit” while you search for a new senior pastor, or consultants who can offer advice to struggling churches. Our interim pastors work through VitalChurch’s proven, biblically based three-phase process to provide churches with a path that leads to real and lasting revitalization.
