The Healthy Congregations workshop uses the insights of family systems theory to help church leaders become more effective stewards of the congregation. The workshop was originally created by Dr. Peter Steinke and is based on the work of Dr. Murray Bowen.  The workshop content is published in Steinke’s book HEALTHY CONGREGATIONS. Since the publication of GENERATION TO GENERATION by Dr. Edwin Friedman, many congregational leaders have come to recognize the importance of understanding family systems theory as it relates to congregational life.

The Healthy Congregations workshop helps both lay and pastoral leaders expand their insight into how congregations function as emotional systems.  It is designed to equip leaders to respond to the presence or potential threat of anxiety in a congregational system, to prevent destructive conflict, and, help the church stay focused on its unique mission and purpose.
