WORKSHOPS BEING OFFERED FOR ADVANCED TRAINING
$$$$ - Dangers, Toils and Snares – the Amazing Grace of Financial Leadership
As a pastor you have fiduciary responsibilities, whether you (or your congregation) likes it or not! You need to be equipped to identify and manage conflicts of interest. You need to be empowered to speak up when financial practices don’t feel right. You need to be aware of the boundaries that can be breached, the potential consequences, and how best practices help protect the congregation, the people managing financial affairs, and you! Trainer: Charlie Kuchenbrod
Bullies, Triangles & The Church
Like any other organization, a church may face challenges generated by people behaving badly. In this workshop, we will address two of the most difficult of these challenges, bullying and triangulation, with tips on what to do.
Trainer: Ronald N. Casey, Psychologist
I Just Got Friended – Church Boundaries in a Digital Age
When church leaders communicate in the virtual world – email, texting, Facebook, Twitter – what boundary issues do we need to keep in mind? This workshop will offer guidelines and an opportunity to explore the issues raised by electronic communications. Trainers: Karen Ziel and Alison Buttrick Patton
“So then the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven and sat down at the…hand of God.”(Mark 16:19, NRSV) Now that’s a spectacular departure! For authorized ministers who are merely mortal, however, leaving a church involves much more forethought and preparation. Whether leaving to assume another calling, changing careers, or deciding it’s time to retire, there are certain critical issues which should be considered, such as: timing of the departure, emotional consequences, impact on family and church members, and honoring the minister’s code of ethics. In this workshop, we won’t discover the secret to ascending into heaven to sit at the hand of God, but we will learn what it takes to leave well. Trainer: Chuck Ericson, Eastern Region Interim Regional Minister
