COVID-19 forced the cancellation of our initially scheduled Conflict Coaches Training event last March. Now, it may actually give opportunity for more LCMC pastors and leaders to be able to attend an online training through Zoom!
The LCMC Conflict Coaches Training event has been rescheduled for those who are interested in assisting congregations with conflict resolution.
The training will be offered twice (individuals may choose to attend either of the events):
- Wednesday and Thursday, August 19 - 20, 2020 (10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. CDT)
- Monday and Tuesday, August 31 - September 1, 2020 (10:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. CDT)
The online version will have training, an opportunity to discuss case studies, and plans for utilizing what we learn in congregational settings.
The hope is to develop LCMC conflict coaches throughout the country who can be an initial contact for LCMC congregations who are experiencing conflict.
Coaches will receive basic training for diagnosing congregational conflict and assisting congregations who need limited help in working through conflicted situations.
There will be NO COST associated with this event!
We will host it through Zoom (participants will need to download zoom to their computer to attend).
Click here for an event brochure with the basic information. Feel free to share it with someone whom you feel may serve well in this capacity (generally meaning someone with a non-anxious presence and some basic knowledge in conflict resolution or psychological systems).
To register, please reply to firstname.lastname@example.org with the basic registration information included in the brochure.
We highly recommend participants having attended an LCMC Conflict Resolution workshop with Pastor Perry Fruhling, Coordinator for Pastoral Ministry for LCMC, or other conflict resolution and peace-making workshops. If not, a participant may download a previously recorded workshop video to view before the event.
Attending does not obligate or guarantee a person in any way to serve as a conflict coach. But, as there is mutual agreement about being equipped and called for this purpose, perhaps God can use us to bring restoration, health, and wholeness to a neighboring congregation.Log in to add a comment
