On the 1st February Rev. Dr. John Squires will begin a 75% 12-month IIM placement at QUC.
The establishing of IIM Placements is developed in consultation with congregations to address times of transition in ministry and enable congregations to discern and embrace positive future ministry. They are short-term placements usually one to two years in length and they follow a particular process addressing 5 development tasks:
- Coming to terms with history
- Leadership shifts
- Discovering new identity
- Denominal linkages
- Committing to new leadership and direction
John comes with a wide and extensive range of experience across the Uniting Church in Congregation, Synod and Presbytery placements. More details coming soon.
