Congregational Leadership in Polarizing Times
all aware of the high degree of polarization that exists in both churches
and society. We ourselves may be a part of this polarizing process. In
congregations, the peace and unity that may once have existed is seriously
damaged. The fact of divisions in society is not new but they do seem more
intense and even more vicious today.
does a ministry of reconciliation look like during these times?
How can we
relate to those who strongly disagree with us?
How can we be pastors to all of
the members of our churches, even those with whom we deeply disagree?
Join us for Family Systems 2017 and explore these issues and learn the tools to overcome them.
The Rev. Robert Creech will lead the Family Systems Theory Conference as the keynote speaker. Click here to learn more about Robert and the conference leadership.
Attendees are encouraged to read Robert's co-authored book The Leader’s Journey: Accepting the Call to Personal and Congregational Transformation (Jossey-Bass, 2003), which applies principles of Bowen Family Systems Theory to the personal development of congregational leaders.
Developing and leading healthy congregations takes many skills. The family systems theory enables leaders to think differently about congregational relationships. This conference is designed to equip and enable clergy, church professionals, and members to lead their congregations with emotional integrity and maturity.
