In recent years, many congregational leaders have faced mounting tension and deepening division within their congregations, not to mention their wider communities. This has pastors and laypersons alike asking how exactly to lead in such a time as this and how to respond to the harms they and their people are experiencing.
The Shalom Collaboratory at Eastern Mennonite Seminary is developing new training programs for theologically informed conflict transformation skills. In these workshops, webinars, and short courses, participants will learn how to implement an adaptive leadership approach to transform conflicts in the creative spirit of Godly imagination, incorporate strategies for trauma awareness and resilience into their congregational practices, or take up other practical approaches to the troubles our congregations now routinely encounter.
- Nov 2: Becoming Resilient Leaders with Trauma-Aware Practices
- Nov 9: Mobilizing the Church for Justice in the Wake of Christendom and White Supremacy
- Nov 14: Leading in an Age of Polarization
- Dec 12: Migration Trauma: Displacement in the Bible and Today
