Do you ever wish you had a map to help you navigate the complex and often confusing worlds of church members? 

God created us as beautifully complex beings, with souls, minds, bodies and personalities. Sometimes ministers can find themselves in deep waters with others’ issues and no clear map for navigating safely through. AGAPE offers training sessions designed to equip ministry leaders with counseling resources to help you better engage your congregation in powerful and transformative ways. Sessions will be held at AGAPE's main office



All sessions will be hosted via Zoom.

Tuesday, September 29 from 9am-11am

Understanding How the Brain Processes Conflict: "Of Course You Know This Means War!"

Taught by AGAPE therapists Danny Camp, DMin, LMFT and Tracy Hall, PhD, LMFT

Zoom meeting information will be provided upon registration.

Participants will:

  1. Discuss the brain science behind what triggers a person’s sense of conflict.
  2. Analyze family of origin and life experience “lenses” that can inform a person’s reactions to conflict.
  3. Examine ways to address conflict that will consider physiological processes and allow the helping professional to look for a better outcome by helping those in conflict learn how to establish realistic, workable “ground rules” for engaging in conflict.

*Note: Because this is a joint training for our Therapy Training Institute (TTI) and our Ministry and Psychology (MaP) tracks, the information presented in this training will primarily work through the objectives in a church and ministry context, but the principles will be applicable to mental health professionals working with couples, families, and individuals in any relationship context.
