Welcome to IMI/SOS International
an independent, non-profit service ministry assisting churches, pastors, and all servants of Christ.
"...establishing and encouraging the brethren in word and deed..." 2 Thessalonians 2:17
There are a number of accounts in Scripture where a need for someone to come along side another to help them through a difficult personal circumstance or period of time is presented. I think of the paralytic man who needed friends to transport him to Jesus, and the account of the man at the pool of Bethesda who had been ill for thirty-eight years with no one to carry him to the waters when stirred (John 5). With respect to the local church, I think of the Apostle Paul’s burden for “all the churches” he had been in ministry with over his years as a servant of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 11).
As I have the privilege of serving our Lord in the ministry of IMI/SOS, I have come to appreciate more and more the strategic role of “coming along side” others in need. Local churches in transitional ministry need wise counsel and biblical guidance as they sort out their own local dynamics and seek leadership that will shepherd well the flock of God.
IMI/SOS is uniquely purposed to come along side local churches and its leadership to provide caring guidance and counsel. The Associates of IMI/SOS, those men available to come along side the local church, stand ready with many years of practical experience and biblical wisdom to assist local churches.
IMI/SOS International exists to minister to local churches by providing interim pastors, pulpit supply, and a variety of consulting, counseling, and educational services to train church leadership and mediate personal and organizational conflicts. If we can help your church, we would count it a privilege. Browse the website for helpful resources and information about our services, then call or e-mail our office for more details. We look forward to ministering along side your church.
