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.
