A crisis management and communication training seminar will be held during the Baptist World Alliance (BWA) Annual Gathering, which will be in Bangkok, Thailand, from July 2-7.

It will be open to all those attending the Gathering.

Crises faced by churches may stem from natural episodes such as hurricanes, floods or earthquakes; or reputational events such as scandal, litigation or conflict.

Participants will learn about understanding crisis, the stages of a crisis, and the dos and don’ts of crisis communication.

The session will explore how to conduct a threat assessment and the basic principles to be applied in the event of a crisis.

There will be guidance on putting a crisis team together, gathering and disseminating information and determining stakeholders.

The BWA Annual Gathering brings together Baptist leaders, theologians, teachers, pastors and other representatives from more than 50 countries for worship, fellowship, study and theological reflection, and decision meetings.
