The Syzygy Calendar



One of the significant challenges we face on a day-to-day basis is working with others, often from different cultures and with different personalities. SYIS workshops are designed to enhance the knowledge, attitudes and skills of Christian workers in how we relate to family, co-workers, friends as well as those from other cultures. SYIS is highly interactive. We will work, share, and practice skills together in pairs, small groups, and as a whole group. The best methods of adult education are utilized so that maximum learning takes place.

Dates: 19-24 November

Location: IMC, Birmingham

Cost: £570

The perfect storm for Christian leadership occurs where systemic hazards meet the vulnerabilities in a leader’s personality.  Come and learn with us about five key systemic hazards, and how they can interact with personality issues to create catastrophic outcomes. How can we as member care workers use mentoring to prevent such situations arising in mission leadership?

Speaker: Rick Lewis

Dates: 16 January

Cost: From £20

The next EMCC will focus on the issue of resilience.  Many mission workers suffer hard knocks in the course of their ministry.  How do we as member care workers help them to develop resilience and become ‘treasure in broken vessels’?
