Foundation Courses

Transforming Church Conflict

  • A five-day residential training course
  • Running several times a year, in a variety of places
  • Aimed at people with leadership responsibility in the church
  • Practical focus & active style of learning
  • Opportunities to work on case-studies from your own experience

This course lays the foundation for a constructive way of approaching church conflict. Explore the revolutionary idea that the New Testament sees conflict as normal and inevitable!

Apply for the standard  course if you have a leadership role in a local church  – for example as an ordained minister, youth leader or lay preacher. This version assumes that you mainly face conflict as it emerges in local churches and congregations or smaller Christian groups.

Apply for the course for Senior Church Leaders  if you have a leadership role at regional or national level  – for example Bishops, Archdeacons and others in the senior staff team (Anglican & Roman Catholic), Regional Ministers (Baptist), District Chairs (Methodist), Divisional Commanders (Salvation Army), Moderators (URC), or equivalents in other denominations. This version assumes that your oversight responsibilities include intervening in conflicts at local church level.

  • teaching
  • group work
  • guided practice
  • role-plays based on the kinds of conflicts encountered in the church
  • prayer & worship
  • Expect an intensive and busy time!
    • To increase your self-awareness as a leader facing conflict, so that you become clearer about how others experience you and more confident about some of what you have to offer, and where you may need to grow
    • To transform your attitude towards conflict and engaging with conflict, so that you are able to face conflict more constructively
    • To equip you with practical skills for working with conflict, so that you can engage with conflict more confidently in future

And also, for the Senior Leaders version only:

  • To equip you with conflict analysis skills, so that you can better assess what type of interventions may be most appropriate in situations referred to you

By the end of the course we expect that you will have:

  • Developed greater awareness about your communication style and its impact on others
  • Reflected on Biblical resources related to conflict
  • Enhanced your skills for communicating effectively in times of conflict
  • Experienced and practised skills for facilitating meetings
  • Learnt ways of building consensus and working with resistance in groups
  • Developed your ability to analyse conflict and to identify what intervention may be most appropriate, such as mediation
  • Considered ways to nurture a culture of creative engagement with conflict
  • Reflected on the type of leadership needed in times of anxiety and tension
  • Discovered ways that conflict can offer opportunities for growth

Leading With Emotional Maturity

  • A three-day residential training course
  • Running twice a year
  • Aimed at people with leadership responsibility in the church
  • Focused on personal growth and character
  • Helps you understand, and transform, your pattern of relating to others

This course deepens the capacity of church leaders to stay at peace in challenging situations, through exploring relationships and patterns within the leader’s own family of origin.

TESTIMONIALS

No course will give you greater insight into yourself or greater help in your ministry.

TESTIMONIALS
