Product Description

We shouldn't fear conflict. We should engage it and use it to be a growth agent in our churches. It doesn't have to be an enemy that tears your church apart. Learn how to handle it wisely and resistance can become one of your most valuable allies as a pastor and church leader. Far from fearing conflict, you can turn it into a catalyst for positive change and a stronger, more united church.

Through the fictional story of a typical pastor embroiled in conflict, Thriving through Ministry Conflict shows you how to handle and resolve conflict in a healthy way. By working through a series of response activities and discussion questions, you will gain powerful insight into the emotional dynamics of conflict. Here are the knowledge and tools that can help you trade self-defeating responses to conflict for an empowering, constructive approach:
  • gain a working command of key conflict survival principles
  • cultivate the skills you need to to effectively navigate the conflicts every ministry leader faces
