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 function, as well as the new ways to get your church to become more cooperative, creative and productive. 

Mediation

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.
