Workshop: Freeing the Spirit in Your Community
Many of our Iowa communities are struggling economically, relationally and spiritually. Strong faith communities are needed as much as ever to give people hope and direction. Discuss practical guidance and strategies on how to connect with the community around you in a way that sets the spirit of God free to do amazing work. Matthew 25 has grown from a start-up twelve years ago into an organization that has grown dramatically and guided investments of more than $10 million into the neighborhood where they work. All of this has been done through foundational practices of listening, discerning and building upon the spirit’s leading.

Workshop: Mental Health Coalition Building
During the 2019 Iowa Annual Conference you are invited to attend an educational mental health breakout session focused towards building community coalitions.

The presentation helps to build community action through powerful and compelling coalition building through community unity, corroboration and trust. The session describes historical and key components to an effective mental health coalition and how mental health unity is achieved through the collective energy of a coalition. The session creates a road map to success. Additionally, the session fosters a common bond of understanding, admiration and mutual respect for those willing to meet the mental health crisis and embrace critical challenges in creative ways to help others and serve their communities.

Workshop: The Gift of Conflict
Many churches are afraid of conflict and avoid it at all costs, but conflict is a gift! Conflict is simply the presence of two or more ideas occupying the same space. A congregation must have some conflict to be a healthy, vital congregation. If there is no conflict it means there is nothing worth being passionate or excited about and apathy is a bigger stumbling block to vitality than conflict! How a church chooses to handle conflict however can either be constructive or destructive to our life together in faith. This teaching session will outline some of the critical concepts of effective conflict management and offer some techniques to transform the struggle from something to be feared into the gift it can be for your congregation. The workshop will be led by members of the Iowa Conference Conflict transformation team coordinated by Rev. Dave Crow, Chairperson & Rev. Dr. Jaye Johnson, Director of Congregational Excellence.A multiethnic movement has already begun, and the church is primed to lead the way. This workshop will focus on how to build healthy multiethnic congregations for both church planters and those seeking to transform ethnically homogeneous churches. If you’re looking to build a multiethnic ministry and don’t know where to start, you’re not alone—this is church on the cutting edge!
