Transitional Ministry is still a relatively new idea. Many churches over the years have hired an Interim Pastor to fill in while they search for their next permanent pastor. Instead of just holding things together while waiting for the next permanent pastor to arrive, transitional pastors deliberately and strategically help the church move to a healthy place where they are ready for the next pastor to arrive.
