System change and conflict for good Naomi García
Congregational Vibrancy Executive Assistant Jodi Fuller
Bringing peace to your community.
Conflict happens. Sometimes it’s arrival is seen, heard and felt. Sometimes it disappears as quickly as it appears. Sometimes one can’t imagine or remember a time without it. Sometimes the heaviness of a pretend peace seems like the only option…a shared normal that doesn’t feel good.
And…there are better ways to work through conflict to transform it for good. The Michigan Conference is ready to help create the possibilities for true, God-given peace.

Family and Organizational Systems
Family systems theory allows you to understand the ways your congregation functions, as well as the new ways to get your church to become more cooperative, creative and productive. Have you ever felt anxious as a leader in your church or family? Have you ever wished for, prayed for a less anxious life for yourself, and healthier relationships with others? If so, then this may be a life-changing opportunity for you. Join us as we learn a different way to function in relationships with others. A way which allows us to define who we are as a person and choose healthy responses in our most important relationships in and outside of our families.
Congregations, like all organizations have conflict. Sometimes this conflict can limit a church community from growing and discovering new mission and ministry. With awareness and training, congregations can learn to navigate conflict in healthy and productive ways.
Change 4 Good
Think of change as a sign of growth. Systems, processes and players are healthiest when they are flexible, making the most of all the parts and players. The Michigan Conference is ready and able to prepare you for this work.
Coaching helps the one being coached achieve their personal A+. The direction is decided by the coachee’s own values and goals, whether professional or personal, empowering them to discover what’s best for themselves. Using trust, vulnerability, and powerful questions, coaching is the art of facilitating self-reflection with life-changing results.
