2018 Forum Sessions

Afternoon Workshops

Pre-Forum Seminar


Afternoon Workshops

Real Relationships: How to Spreak Openly in Your Church

Our churches are the place in which we should be able to be open with each other—open with our sorrows and our sins—but so many people are reluctant to share their hearts. This workshop will consider how you share your own heart with your church in a way that invites them to do the same.


What Everyone Should Know about Anger

Anger kills. People in your care are murdering and being murdered. Parents use anger to control children. Spouses who seem civil in public can be at war in private. This workshop will consider what all of us should know about anger, and how we can help angry people.


Pre-Forum Seminar

Training in Pastoral Care and Counselling

We are all involved in helping others, and we all want to do it better. This Pre-Forum Seminar is for those who want to grow in their face-to-face ministry skills. We will discuss essential features of how we counsel others.  Come with your questions and a case study for which you would like help.

Participants will have the opportunity to receive guidance in their pastoral ministry for the following year.  There will also be an opportunity to sign up for breakfast mentoring time during the Forum.
