Mediation Skills Training Institute for Church Leaders (“MSTI”) — The 32-hour training is useful for clergy who are looking for continuing education opportunities in addition to honing their mediation skills. The next three MSTIs will be in Huron, OH (May 27-31; Christ Episcopal Church), Cranberry Twp, PA (June 24-28; Cranberry Presbytery), and, Glen Ellyn, IL (August 4-9; St. Mark’s Episcopal Church).

Fractured Lives, Fractured Churches: Healing the Breach — Estrangement in private lives often leads to intense tribalism in public life. Anchored in Family Systems, the workshop is designed to help leaders understand the phenomenon of estrangement, how it comes about, and how the church can be a gathering place for restoration and healing.

Leadership Development Through Family Systems Cohorts — More copies can be downloaded and printed from our website. There are three separate groups that meet, providing a wider option of dates to choose from. The pre-registration deadline for saving $100 is September 9th, 2024.
