Are you finding your church to be more divided and full of conflict every day? As leaders, we’re often caught in the middle. Is there a way to effectively lead during these times in which it seems that everything is a matter of polarization?
Leadership in this age when divisions harm community life presents an unprecedented challenge. In this free webinar, Rev. Jake Morrill outlines how we can better lead our congregations when we are clear with ourselves about our own guiding principles.
In this course, Jake will guide us through exercises that are practical, not only theoretical.
Jake is a long-time pastor trained at The Bowen Center for the Study of the Family, in Georgetown, DC, in the theory and methodology of Dr. Murray Bowen known as Family Systems Theory. He is a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and has a unique ability to distill years of study into simple, practical teachings.
