RW360 Free Online Seminars
In response to conversations with pastors around the country, RW360 has recently developed three new free online seminars that are designed to help churches strengthen the leadership skills, workplace performance and witnessing abilities of their people. For more advanced training, please visit the RW Academy or join them at their annual Sowing Peace Conference in November.
The Relationally Wise Leader – This 2-hour seminar describes the relational challenges church, ministry and business leaders face today and describes how they can model and teach relational wisdom (biblical emotional intelligence), peacemaking and Christian mediation to inspire and equip their people to respond to life’s challenges in a way that strengthens relationships, promotes personal reconciliation, builds unity, preserves marriages and reveals the transforming power of Jesus and his gospel. This seminar also provides risk management resources that reduce exposure to legal liability when carrying out pastoral ministry.
Relational Wisdom in the Workplace – Christians frequently report that the workplace is one of their greatest areas of tension and stress. In this 40-minute teaching, Ken Sande describes how Christians can use the principles of relational wisdom and biblical peacemaking to improve their work performance, accelerate their career advancement and, most importantly, serve their coworkers in ways that open the door for sharing the gospel of Christ.
Using Relational Wisdom for Witnessing – This 1-hour seminar describes ways that Christians can use the principles of relational wisdom and biblical peacemaking to build relationships that make it easy and natural to share the gospel with relatives, friends, neighbors and coworkers.
