FaithCARE will be hosting a virtual restorative practice training: Learning How to Grow Restorative Churches: support for interim/transitional ministers
This training has two parts and is geared toward Interim or Transitional Leaders.
Date: Part 1, October 17-November 14, 2022. Part 2, January 16-February 13, 2023.
Time: weekly, 1:00-4:00 PM EST
Part One introduces a framework of basic principles to create a relationship-focused community with an increased capacity to work through, and grow from, conflict handled well. Participants will learn ways to apply framework principles to support a community to connect with its story or narrative, speak civilly with one another, hold productive meetings, make good decisions, and move forward well.
Part One will take place on Mondays, beginning on October 17 through November 14, 2022. It will be from 1:00 – 4:00 pm EST.
Part Two builds on Part 1 with in-depth training to facilitate conversations when there’s unresolved conflict, harm has occurred or when people are experiencing deep grief.
Particular emphasis will focus on conflict arising out of power-vacuums, side-taking, and disagreements over vision and mission.
Part Two will take place on Mondays, beginning on January 16, 2023 through February 13, 2023. It will be from 1:00 – 4:00 pm EST. Part One is a prerequisite for Part Two.
While this training focuses on interim/transitional ministry, it is also recommended for:
- Council and Board members
- Leadership teams
- Pastoral care teams
- Denominational staff
A minimum of 6 participants are required for this training to proceed, and a maximum of 14 participants.
