Connection Chapels

Attend Relationship IQ's "Communication, Conflict, and Christ" Connection Chapel during the fall or spring. "Communication, Conflict, & Christ" allows students to learn how to harness interpersonal conflict to become more like Christ. This track walks them through discovering how their pain around identity and safety shows up in relationships with friends and family and can be transformed into realizing their new life in Christ, characterized by more peaceful relationships.
