Conflict Transformation Resources
E-Learning & Technology Resources
e-Learning is providing a way for us to offer trainings and webinars that are more accessible than ever before. Through this technology we are able to create experiences that connect people across great distances, provide consistency, be more cost effective, and lessen the impact on the environment by going paperless. It is flexible enough to incorporate a variety of media, scenarios, and small group work, all of which are designed for maximum participant engagement. For more information, see our E-Learning and Technology Resources page.
Ethics & Boundaries Resources
“Ethics is nothing else than reverence for life.” ~ Albert Schweitzer
Ministry puts us in touch with one another in very intimate ways. When we engage with people with a reverence for their place in the web of life, we support their growth and transformation. To do this we need to have deep compassion, clear boundaries and a well-defined understanding of ethics. These resources support healthy ethical functioning. For more information and resources, see our Ethics and Boundaries Resources page.
Ministry Leadership and Board Resources
Non-Traditional Ministry Resources
The landscape of our ministries is changing. Many churches across all denominations are shrinking or closing all together. The number of U.S. adults who do not identify with any organized religion is growing. Just as the containers from our child hood have changed, so must the containers for our spiritual experience. For more information and resources, see our Non-Traditional Ministry Resources page.
Charles Fillmore said that “life is an ever-progressive, upward spiral of consciousness evolution.” Ministry is about spiritual transformation and evolution and constantly places us in transition – the tender emotional space of letting go and embracing something new. These resources support individuals and communities in engaging the process of transition intentionally, allowing them to move through transition with greater grace and ease. For more information and resources, see our Transitional Resources page.
