This workshop includes reflection, conversation, and exercises to help those involved in ministry to address conflict in healthy and productive ways. Practical tools and skill building will be part of this foundational workshop.

MARG VAN HERK-PARADIS  is Vice President of Services and a Senior Conflict Management Consultant, with Credence and Company. Marg is a graduate of the Conflict Management Certificate Program offered at Conrad Grebel. Previously Marg spent many years as the Executive Director of a L’Arche Community in Stratford, an organ- ization she has been a member of for 25 years.

The workshop sessions will be oriented toward:

  • deep knowledge of congregational health, conflict management, and leadership in churches;
  • a spirit of “unconditional positive regard”—we engage others with a profound sense of respect and in a manner that honours all parties;
  • mindful attentiveness that listens deeply to others and that seeks the deeper wisdom emerging in the conversation;
  • a prayerful presence that listens for the movement of the Spirit in the concerns being reviewed; and
  • a manner of engagement that draws from the personal integrity, grace, and humility of the facilitator.
