Healthy Congregations (Nov 3, 2017, Irmo, SC)
Lombard Mennonite Peace Center: is again hosting its Healthy Congregations. The Healthy Congregations workshop uses the insights of family systems theory to help church leaders become more effective stewards of their congregations. The workshop was developed by Dr. Peter Steinke and is based on the work of Dr. Edwin Friedman, author of Generation to Generation: Family Process in Church and Synagogue.

Since the publication of Generation to Generation, many pastors and other church leaders have come to recognize the importance of understanding family systems theory as it relates to congregations. The Healthy Congregations workshop helps both clergy and lay leaders expand their insight into how churches function as emotional systems.

Friedman noted that in many congregations today negative, reactive forces are allowed to set the agenda for the church. He believed that such reactivity in churches is reflective of societal anxiety, which is likely to increase in the years ahead. We can, therefore, expect ever increasing levels of reactivity in our churches for the foreseeable future.

What can be done to prevent anxiety from becoming a toxic force in your congregation? The Healthy Congregations workshop is designed to equip leaders to respond to the presence or potential threat of anxiety in a congregational system in ways that prevent destructive conflict and help the church stay focused on its unique mission and purpose.
