Relational Covenants as a Tool for Conflict Transformation in Congregational and Community Nonprofit Contexts

Wednesday, February 2, 2022 | 1 p.m. OR 7 p.m. CST  |  Zoom

Conflict is a natural, normal, and necessary part of life.  When navigated faithfully, conflict can be transformed from a destructive dynamic to a constructive force that produces growth.  Relational covenants are powerful tools for transforming conflict because they provide clear expectations to guide human relationships.  This plenary will describe what relational covenants are, why we need them, and how we create them. 

All are welcome!
