Beginning February 17, 2016 and continuing through November 16, 2016, the Group will center its discussion on the Bowen Family Systems Theory. The Group will examine where the pastor or a church worker stands at the intersection of three interactive systems: the individual families in the church, the church itself as an emotional system, and one’s won family of origin.
The Group will be led by Rev. Ken Barwick, an ordained United Methodist Elder and director and therapist with Mt. Hebron Counseling Service, Mt. Hebron UMC, West Columbia SC.
Dr. Kennon Callahan will be the featured speaker at a daylong Stewardship Summit offered by the South Carolina Conference of The United Methodist Church.
Set for Saturday, March 5, Simpsonville UMC, the day begins at 10 a.m. and concludes at 3:15 p.m. There will be a working lunch, and Callahan will be available after the event for conversation for anyone who wishes to have further discussion with him.
Callahan is a bestselling author, researcher, professor, theologian, and pastor. He is among today’s most sought-after speakers and consultants. His newest book is Living in Hope.
Pastors and Local Church Disaster Response Coordinators are encouraged to monitor changing weather conditions and be prepared to provide assistance to anyone in their congregations or community who may need help.
