Leadership and Peacemaking

Leadership and Peacemaking addresses one of the most destructive hindrances to furthering the kingdom of God – unmanaged conflict within the body of Christ.  Sessions include:

  • Why conflict is confusing? What is happening in the church (or organization, family, etc.) that allows conflict to escalate and become destructive? This session addresses how churches and organizations experience unmanaged conflict, and what is needed to break the cycle of conflict that is spiraling out of control.
  • Living in a Damaged World. If God gave us the ministry of reconciliation, are there opportunities to do the ministry he gave us?  If God called us to be peacemakers, are there times when we need to make peace?  This session addresses the above questions and helps participants identify their own personal conflict style.
  • Could it be that what Jesus taught really works? This session addresses various perspectives and skills that help us respond to conflict in constructive ways.  Additionally, we begin to take a closer look at what Jesus taught in the area of conflict management.
  • Peacekeeping versus Peacemaking. Many times we have the desire but at the same time we just lack the skills to be a follower of Jesus in the area of reconciliation and peacemaking.  What blocks us from having peace with one another?  Why do we settle for peacekeeping instead of practicing peacemaking?
  • Experiencing Forgiveness. In this session we discuss the importance of the elements of forgiveness that lead to reconciliation.  Conflict can be very confusing, but a model can help us understand what is happening, and give us direction as we try to discover a path to reconciliation.
  • Experiencing Agreement. In this session we explore the many options that point to the fact that there is a possibility of finding the ultimate option of “our” way.  

Parenting: Building Relationships That Transform Behavior

Children are like wet cement. They are very impressionable. Building Relationships that Transform Behavior teaches respectful, reasonable, and restorative skills and strategies to help our children learn that issues  are important, and, at the same time, relationships within the family are highly valued.

Many parents exhaust their energy and time managing misbehavior, breaking down the relationships with their children. As we deepen our relationship with our children, we have the opportunity to help them not only transform their behavior, but also transform their thinking, as they see how their behavior affects others.

Memory Ceremony - Remembering Those We Love

The purpose of the Memory Ceremony is to create a safe place for those who experience loss to remember their loved ones, and for participants to be introduced to the needs of the mourner. During this candle lighting ceremony, participants are invited to light an individual candle in memory of someone who has passed away, and share a special memory of their loved one.
