Presented by Colleen Lam Nguyen, M.A., Marriage and Family Therapist Intern

A seminar on how to prepare and handle possible conflicts in your group, church, or mission team by examining common communication and relationship pitfalls.

The two scenarios are common:
1) A relationship is broken, people are
misunderstood, leaders leave.
Unrest remains and hurts the effectiveness of your group.
2) A summer missions team leaves to go
abroad and serve others. Yet,
after the first week, disunity occurs.

Come and Discover the keys to developing and maintaining unity within a team.

Topical Discussion:

Dating. Love. Desire. Intimacy. Marriage. The majority of Christian singles say they want to experience the joy and fulfillment embodied in each of the above words, yet many are finding themselves unexpectedly single into their 30′s, 40′s and beyond. In this presentation we’ll explore:
• How church leaders and staff can better care for their single congregants and promote a sense of place and belonging.
• Some of the variables that create complexity in the world of Christian dating.
• Tools that can help men and women cope with the difficulty of being single into their middle adult years and the pain of unfulfilled longing and desire.
• The importance of single men and women claiming an identity as God’s beloved sons and daughters, and how this identity is crucial to knowing peace and contentment in the single life.

RSVP no later than Feb. 4th to (415) 764-0252 or
