Join us for occasional webinars on topics that are relevant to all those working in Membership/Belonging!

Our next Webinar is April 25 from 7:30-9 pm EST:  “All in the Family: An Introduction to Systems Thinking” with Mark Bernstein!

Systems thinking requires that we look at the congregation as a whole rather than focusing on specific parts.  From this vantage point, the Membership Professional is better able to understand what is happening in the congregation and so in a better position to offer solutions.  This webinar will explore the nature of systems thinking, how congregations function as emotional systems, the impact of anxiety on the congregation, and how the Membership Professional can deflect anxiety by being the non-anxious leader.
