Living in healthy tension is essential in the Christian community. Tension avoidance, either by the prevailing systemic life of the organization or by the interim leader, will eventually lead to greater unhealth of the system and therefore lack of effective missional focus. A combination of lecture and guided table conversation will lead participants to greater awareness and application of the intentional use of healthy tension during the interim. A copy of Understanding Your Congregation as a System will be provided upon registration to prepare participants for the interactive portions of the conference.
A note regarding masks during the COVID-19 pandemic: The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has provided mask guidance that flexes based on three key COVID-19 phases (response, recovery, and readiness). The Michigan District will follow any mask mandates by the MDHHS, local health departments, or venues that are in place at the time of an event or conference. Masks are generally available at the registration desk. If you are feeling unwell or have any symptoms of COVID prior to arrival, please stay home.
