Emotional Intelligence

How to be aware of, control, and express one’s emotions, and how to handle interpersonal relationships judiciously and empathetically.

Cultural Intelligence

Leading Through Questions

An approach to leadership that helps equip and develop others.

Polarity Management

Learning how to live with spiritual paradox.

Mindful Self-Compassion

Basic mindfulness and compassion practices in a format compatible with spiritual growth. The 6-hour program is modular and can be customized for leaders or congregations.

Intersections Boundary Training

Both congregants, leaders and regional associations can benefit from half-day or full-day Intersections sessions that train individuals to better understand and set wise boundaries.

That’s because every individual within the leadership of a church — both regionally and locally — needs to understand, respect and set boundaries in order to cultivate a healthy community.

In many judicatory bodies such as presbyteries, dioceses or conferences require and provide this training to their members.

The boundary training provided by the Clergy & Congregation Care program is customized to meet association requirements and time frames. It is also designed to be highly interactive, fully engaging the participants.

Boundary training may also be offered as needed with a recommended group size of 10 or more to keep per person costs accessible.

“David did an excellent job of keeping the presentation understandable and useful, and the group gathered was grateful that they had spent time on the subject.”
