How is it that some groups seem to relate well together, work well together, and think well together when there are groups that just don’t seem to connect at all? Without feeling connected, people may participate in our ministry groups, but will they be changed as a result? As a leader, making a strong connection possible means to stop doing what comes naturally to you and start doing what works. The Group Dynamics course will show you ten effective ways to guide your ministry group. Begin today and experience a great connection in your group.


This course was very informative. I think every leader, whether in corporate America or Church leadership, should take this course to learn how to deal with People Dynamics, Process Dynamics and Play Dynamics.

I can see where some of the aspects of this course have been implemented in the ministry at my church and where people are using the tactics and tips imparted. I am gaining so much from these courses and realize even more than ever I have a lot of work to do.

I would highly recommend the course Group Dynamics to my colleagues. This course is beneficial to anyone who functions in a leadership, managerial or team member role. The lecturer Deb McCormick made each lesson engaging, interjected real-life scenarios and biblical principles that can be used in any setting both professionally and spiritually. Each lesson was thought provoking and provided relevant reasons and topics on the importance of making a connection; stop doing what you have always done if you are not getting the results you should; learn to appreciate the differences in others and use them for the benefit of the team; and specifically lesson four, “Start Trying to Impress Others and Start Impacting Others.”
