  1. SHARPEN YOUR INTERPERSONAL SKILLS THIS FALL — One of the major reasons missionaries come home from the field is unresolved interpersonal conflict. This workshop is designed to teach and reinforce the skills of effective interpersonal relationships as well as personal growth. Issues discussed, from a thoroughly Biblical perspective, include building trust, listening and communication skills, giving and receiving confrontation, living in community, managing stress, maintaining margin, being an encourager, etc. Attention is also given to identifying the skills appropriate to the missionary’s destination culture. Dates for the course are October 21- 25, 2002 at the Center for Intercultural Training campus in North Carolina.
