You’re either in a crisis or heading towards one.
Suicide, a school shooting, and moral failures are all things I didn’t learn how to prepare for in seminary. In my over 20+ years in church leadership, I’ve witnessed some things I pray you never have to encounter. However, the reality is that you will have to deal with a crisis sooner or later. In this course, we take an honest look at the crisis we’ve faced, what we did right, wrong, and what we would do differently if we had to do it again.
