West Virginia Clergy “Gathering in Grace” @ Christ UMC, Charleston WV

October 19, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - October 21, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

Conflict is a given in life and congregations.  Conflict can paralyze relationships and a congregation’s mission.  However, paralysis does not have to occur. Conflict can be navigated in healthy ways, relationships can be transformed, and congregations can be strengthened.  Come, join us, and learn how to move forward.  Our mission for the Gathering In Grace event is to offer the clergy of the WVAC practical, proven tools for leading during conflict.

Through interactive learning in a worship environment, Stephanie Hixon and Craig Gilliam of JustPeace will guide this three-day gathering of  West Virginia Conference clergy through a journey from anxiety through compassionate encounters to transformative healing.

Continuing Education Hours:   8 contact hours of Continuing Education is available by attending and participating in the entire event.  You may also receive an additional 2 contact hours (totaling 10 hours) by downloading  Where Angels Dare to Dance  by Craig Gilliam for reading prior to this event.  The cost of this download is $5.00.   If you prefer to have a paper copy of this book, click on this  Print Copy Book Link .   The print copy is available for $7.00.
