Conflict is inevitable in the church, but it need not be destructive, say planners of a conference set at Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond.
“Responding to the Challenge of Congregational Conflict” will provide a better understanding of individual responses to conflict, conflict as an asset as well as a liability and biblical models for responding to conflict. Learn how conflict develops and escalates within a congregation, how to diagnose the level of conflict in a congregation, and develop constructive strategies for responding to conflict.
Format for the workshop includes lecture, small group discussion and case study reflection. Chris Gambill, senior consultant with the Center for Congregational Health, will lead the workshop.
The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., Tuesday, March 20, at Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond.
