In my experience, much of what emerges as conflict in our churches is the result of a combination of fear of conflict and leadership styles. Scripture and our Lord indicate that conflict exists - it can be a blessing or a curse depending on how we deal with it. The goal of this presentation is to offer practical advice to leaders and members on how to address conflict in our churches so as to glorify God.

Christians are not immune from the stresses of life. Ideally, though, Christian faith should provide a rich resource of resiliency. Research confirms that faith can make a significant difference in helping people cope with difficult circumstances. Unfortunately, some Christians don't experience that resiliency. They either don't make the connections with their faith and their challenges or they distort Christian beliefs in a way that causes further difficulties. This webinar will address healthy coping from a Christian worldview.
