Going through personal life transitions can be hard on us physically and emotionally. Getting married, having children, struggling with illness and other circumstances will impact our ministry in a variety of ways. Our facilitators have experienced these life journeys and will help you navigate your personal life and the congregation during this time.

Ever feel like your ministry is stifled because of other leadership around you? Do you feel like you can’t make changes because you have no power or influence? Ministry in a subsystem such as children and youth can be hard to navigate. We will talk about this concept, and how we can thrive in the midst of it. In fact, we believe these ministries have the most influence in our congregations!

Knowing more about the culture of your congregation is important when trying to be a leader. This workshop focuses on the congregational system as it relates to family systems theory. We will talk about what it means to navigate this family system, and to remain a leader among the many behaviors and personalities that make up your church culture.
