Do you want to help increase the number of Reconciling churches, communities and campus ministries? Fall 2012 RMN began offering a new training to Reconciling United Methodists in the art of coaching congregations, Sunday school classes, United Methodist Women Units, and campus ministries through the Reconciling process. In our first pilot year, RMN is offering 10 trainings to identify Reconciling United Methodists who are ready to coach a prospective Reconciling community to take a next step in the Reconciling process. RMN has identified 500 prospective Reconciling congregations – we need your help to engage them in widening their welcome to our LGBTQ sisters and brothers.Each process coach training will include skills building around topics common in the Reconciling process including: complex identities, framing, steps of the Reconciling Process, graceful engagement, and conflict management.
We have a few spots left open for our upcoming Reconciling Ministries Process Coach Training at Travis Park UMC (San Antonio) on Friday Jan 18 and Saturday Jan 19, 2013. The workshop is free, with a $25 suggested donation. Please RSVP below if you are interested. If you’d like to carpool, please contact Deana at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can learn how to help coach local UMC communities and congregations through the Reconciling journey – how cool is that?
