ICM's Annual Congregational Leadership Conference was held April 17 & 18, 2013 - please join our email distribution list for informaton on upcoming events in this area, and join us next time!
"Leading through Transition and Conflict"
No one said church would be easy, especially when congregational life is family life for many believers. Learning ways to better manage conflict or stop it before it arises can be extremely beneficial to administrators, volunteer leadership, and youth and childrens' ministers. The 2013 Spring Leadership Conference will provide attendees with ready-to-use tools to lead conflict management programs within their own congregations, including self-assessment instruments, PowerPoint presentations and simulation exercises. Attendees who complete the two-day training will receive a Certificate of Management of Congregational Change and Conflict from the Institute for Conflict Management.
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED FOR THIS EVENT.

- set vision in the midst of opposing groups
- determine an authentic style of managing transition and conflict
- move a congregation or smaller church group through an impasse (how to get “un-stuck”)
