Seminar on Congregational Dynamics

Leadership and Anxiety in the Church – A Family Systems Perspective

October 15
Wednesday: 9:00am – 4:00pm
First United Methodist Church – Georgetown
410 E. University Ave., Georgetown

Since the publication of Dr. Edwin Friedman’s Generation to Generation, many pastors and other church leaders have become aware of Bowen family systems theory as a way of understanding congregational dynamics.  Family systems theory identifies differentiation of self and anxiety as two key variables impacting human functioning.  The seminar on Leadership and Anxiety in the Church looks at the challenge presented by the rising levels of anxiety being experienced in churches today, as well as the role that self-differentiated leadership can play in calming such anxiety.
