Developing A Healthy Congregations Team

Rev Carol McKinley

Wednesday, January 21, 2015
7:00 – 8:15 PM Pacific Time

Rev. Carol McKinley
Affiliated Community Minister with the Olympia UU Congregation. Carol is a member of the Pacific Northwest District’s Healthy Congregations Team.

You have a congregational covenant that sets forth expectations for healthy relationships in your church community. But what about those times when differing ideas or priorities challenge those relationships?

A Healthy Congregations Team can help members recognize that conflict need not be negative; in fact, it can present opportunities for deeper relationships. A congregational team can help your members broaden their understanding of conflict, and can be available help those who find themselves in conflict develop new ways to address differences.
