Transforming the Conversation: Growth Through Healthy Conflict
On Saturday, June 3rd the ABC-WI Regional Office will host our next Church tools workshop – this time on the subject of Pastor-Congregation relationships. The workshop is titled “Transforming the Conversation: Growth Through Healthy Conflict. Our guest speaker will be Pastor Brandyn Simmons, the interim pastor of First Baptist Church in Delevan.
ABOUT THE WORKSHOP
In this workshop, we’ll talk about how healthy conflict can be a catalyst for growth and positive change. We’ll distinguish between healthy and unhealthy conflict. We’ll talk about the difference between transition and change. We’ll talk about trusting relationships that can contribute to the mission of your congregation. We’ll also discuss good habits of communication that can help the church participate in God’s creative action in the world.
- Are you having difficulties with communication among the leaders of your congregation?
- Are you concerned that unhealthy conflict is causing church decline?
- Is conflict a problem? Because it taints everything? Or because it’s being suppressed?
If you’re dealing with these or similar questions, please consider joining us for this workshop. You’ll gain some insight and perhaps a few tools to help you begin thinking differently about conflict in your congregation.
The workshop will be in the hybrid format:
On-site: Saturday, June 3rd from 9:30-11:30 AM at the ABC-WI Regional Office (15330 Watertown Plank Road Elm Grove, WI 53072). PLEASE PARK IN THE REAR OF THE BUILDING.
