Church as Family System (ONLINE)

The Conference Leadership Academy introduces the Spring 2015 course line up. This course is part of our Relationships/Communication Track. Systems thinking states that the behavior of any given individual could be explained as a result of the interactions with the whole.

Systems thinking allows us to take a step back, to distinguish between the “trees” and the “forest”, and to look at the church as a whole. This course will equip church leaders (authorized ministers and laity) to use family and organizational systems thinking when working with a congregation or at any group setting.
