    Consultants Training: The Art of Consulting With Faith Communities

    2:00 pmFamily Resource Center - Baptist Children's Home - Thomasville, NC

    Faith communities are looking for assistance in meeting the increasingly complex challenges of mission, ministry and congregational life.  The programmatic, cookie-cutter answers once offered by denominations and traditional consultants are now often inadequate to meet these challenges. The need is growing for consultants who can provide more personalized, context-specific help to faith communities.

    To meet this growing need for qualified consultants, the Center for Congregational Health, in partnership with the Interim Ministry Network, is offering a process to train and develop consultants to work with faith communities.

    The dates for the Residential Lab portion of this training  are October 10-14, 2016.  The application deadline is September 16, 2016.  The lab will begin at 2:00 p.m. on Monday (10/10/16) and conclude Friday (10/14/16) before noon. This portion of the training will be held on the campus of the Baptist Children’s Home in Thomasville, North Carolina.  Specific dates and times for the fieldwork telephone conferences will be scheduled during the Residential Lab.
