June 1-3, 2015 Daring Faith™: Show Up, Be Seen, Live Brave™
Would you like to strengthen your leadership and increase your capacity to be courageous in uncertainty? Do you want to be more resilient personally, and model that in your congregation? Based on the groundbreaking work of Brené Brown, this workshop will empower you to more effectively handle stressful situations in ministry. You’ll learn tools to better understand the dynamics of conflict and shame, and the role of vulnerability in ministry. You’ll gain greater resiliency for handling the ups and downs of life and ministry. Faith, theology and Scripture will frame our time. This workshop is a combination of short lectures, self-exploration, sharing and skill-building exercises that help church professionals lead with increased joy, authenticity and purpose.
Daring Faith™ is based on the Daring Way™, developed by Brown. The primary focus is in developing shame resilience skills and developing a courage practice that transforms the way we live, love, parent and lead. Brown is a research professor at the University of Houston and a bestselling author. She is known for a very popular TED Talk on vulnerability.
In preparation for this course, participants will be required to complete three online self-evaluation tools and watch Brown’s two TED Talks. Reading her books is encouraged.
