(1) Practice communicating respectfully across differences;
(2) Develop greater self-awareness and recognize one's own cultural formation;
(3) Learn to understand power dynamics;
(4) Study scripture and do theological reflection from multiple cultural perspectives; and
(5) Learn practical skills and methods needed for confident leadership.
Who should attend:
Pastors, preachers, ministers, church leaders, small group leaders, youth ministers, teachers, new church developers, church planters—persons in positions of influence in their communities or congregations, who want to move past the cultural isolation of many groups of Christians.
What to expect?
This event will be highly interactive, asking participants to be fully present for the entire time period, open to new ideas, and willing to take modest risks in engaging others.
