Event description

Description

Asian American Center of Fuller Theological Seminary presents

FAMILY SYSTEMS, CONFLICT, & CREATIVE LEADERSHIP

This interactive workshop addresses particular leadership challenges regarding communal life, conflict, and enmeshment in Asian American ministry contexts. Providing insights and concepts from psychology, neuroscience, and theology, the various speakers will facilitate group discussions after a short presentation.

Come with your whole leadership team and directly apply what you learn to your ministry context!




SESSION INFORMATION

This workshop for Asian American pastors and ministry workers is comprised of three different sessions, each with a time for discussion and interaction after the presentation.

8:30am Registration

9am-9:15am Welcome and Introduction

9:15-10:25 Session 1: "Family Systems and the Leader" (Cameron Lee, PhD)
Cameron will present how the three family systems (1. Leader's family of origin, 2. Members' families of origin, and 3. Congregation/Ministry as a family system) overlap and interact with each other. Without knowing these nature of these systems, the leader will be blindsided or fail to see the "root" of recurring problems.

10:35-11:45 Session 2: "Interpersonal Conflict and Leadership" (Migum Gweon, LMFT)
Interpersonal conflicts within ministry can entangle and drain the leader. Migum will provide a framework to understand the relational dynamics and teach us a range of options and trajectories for us to consider.

11:55-1:00pm Session 3: "Sabbath, Presence, and Creativity for Leaders" (Daniel D. Lee, PhD)
Daniel will show how a spirituality based on Sabbath with its practices is critical for leader's ability to deeply connected with people, and for a growing creativity in all aspects of leadership. The key is not just more "self-care" for leaders but a deeper understanding of an embodied gospel for everyone.
