TARGET PRACTICE: Healthy Conflict Resolution

April 10, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am


“Conflict isn’t necessarily good or bad, right or wrong … How we view, approach, and work through our differences does, to a large extent, determine our whole life pattern.”     ~ D. Augsburger

Conflict happens! We would love to avoid it, but all too often someone takes aim at us, or we take aim at someone.  Join us as we take a deep look at, and learn some life-giving lessons about:

WHY conflict happens,

WHAT happens as a result of conflict, and

WHERE we go from there. 

This workshop will take place on Zoom. There will be a teaching session with Dr. Cynthia Fantasia and group discussion, with a Q&A at the end. It will be a great way to connect and learn while we’re all social distancing!


Cynthia Fantasia served for 24 years as Pastor of Women and Service at Grace Chapel, Lexington, MA. She speaks nationally and internationally, has written several Bible studies that have been used in several churches across the country, and she loves to share God’s love.  Cynthia passionately presents the Word in a relevant, practical, and often humorous way.  Her journey of faith has taken her on some exhilarating adventures, some deep valleys, and through some turbulent waters. Through it all, Cynthia has found that He is sufficient for any, and all, of life’s experiences. 

She was one of 15 pastors in North America selected to join a cohort, through a Templeton Grant, investigating the relationship between science and faith. Cynthia was the co-founder of GCScience – which now has an international internet following of over half million. Cynthia was a member of the team awarded a Templeton Grant to do further study in the local area.

A contributing author in Mothers Have Angel Wings by Carol Kent, and 30 Ways to Embrace Life by Lucinda McDowell, Cynthia is the author of “In The Lingering Light: Courage and Hope for the Alzheimer’s Caregiver” chronicling her and her husband’s journey through Alzheimer’s Disease. It was released by NavPress July 9, 2019.

Ordained in 2007, Cynthia earned a D.Min. from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary.

She and her late husband have three adult children and five grandchildren.  Long walks, great books, and seeing the world through the eyes of her grandchildren, fill Cynthia’s days with wonder and joy. You can visit Cynthia online at www.cynthiafantasia.com.

Cynthia is also one of our featured speakers in the by design Speakers Directory. If you are looking for a Christian speaker for your special event, please visit our online directory or contact us to request a hard copy.
