1)  AMBS Practical Leadership Training: An Intro to Practices and Principles for Effective Boards 

– Luis Tapia Rubio and Michael Danner  – Hybrid – Spanish interpretation provided

Boards are unique and continually adjust to changes — including their members. The organizations they support are also unique, so there is not one model or set of rules for all boards to follow. Instead, following guiding principles is what brings the best outcomes. Boards that create a context for the healthy functioning of their organizations are essential as we face the challenges of leadership today.

2)  Healthy Conflict Transformation Amid Polarization

– Jes Stolzfus Buller – Hybrid, Spanish Interpretation Provided

The world around us models extremely unhealthy ways of talking to (or yelling at) one another when it comes to conflictive issues. We say we are peacemakers, but when it comes to extended family gatherings and conversations on social media, it doesn’t always look that way. We need to practice. There is a holy energy that comes when we work at conflict in constructive ways. Engaging conflict rather than running from it represents a reimagining of ministry — a completely different way to do church. Healthy practices for engaging with people with whom we disagree are fundamental skills that pastors and leaders need today.

In this workshop you will…

•Gain tools for understanding and approaching interpersonal and congregational conflict in the current context of polarization and division

•Study biblical texts for insights into tools for dialogue and conflict management

•Grow skills while learning principles and best practices for moving towards conflict and addressing divisive issues through healthy dialogue

•Imagine possibilities for congregations and communities to learn and practice healthy dialogue for conflict management
