the meditation
of my heart be 
acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer."

Training for Churches

CHRISTLIKE DIALOGUE TRAINING

Training can be customized to meet the specific needs of the congregation or organization. For more information and/or to schedule training, you may contact us through the website.

Goal:

To engage people with differing views in conversations that honor God in place of gossip and argumentative monologues.

Topics Covered in Our Training:

  • As Christians, are we representing Jesus well
    through the words we speak?
  • Conflict Offers Opportunity
  • Focusing on Christ's Interests
  • Becoming Other-Minded Listeners
  • Seeking and Speaking the Truth in Love
  • Grace, Truth, and Tolerance
  • Entrusting the Outcome to God
  • Maturity in Christ Requires Meekness
  • Persevering in Love, Despite Differences
  • From Debate to Christlike Dialogue
  • Guidelines for Christlike Dialogue

A significant part of Christlike Dialogue training involves mutual accountability for putting into practice the biblical principles needed to make Christlike dialogue a priority for your congregation or organization. We encourage your leadership to continue to reinforce the biblical principles taught and experienced through the initial training. Leaders are encouraged to establish a regularly scheduled time for sharing testimonies of the effectiveness of putting Christlike dialogue into practice. For Christlike dialogue to become more prevalent than gossip and argumentative monologues, it will take ongoing prayer, practice, reminding one another, mutual accountability, and encouragement.

Training Fee: $1000/congregation or organization for up to 8 hours of hands on training.

Materials Fee:
 
A $10/participant fee includes a copy of When Christians Act Like Christians.

Life-transforming. This went right to my heart. I’ve never been as challenged in such a way in such a short period of time. I wish I had had this training 10 years ago.

D. Min. Students, Denver Seminary

The transformation of the leadership of the church has been remarkable. I see such a level of maturity among the leaders and a willingness to engage in hard but necessary communication that did not exist prior to this training. I sense a genuine concern to show the love of Christ regardless of the circumstances and this is totally refreshing as a pastor.
