    I want to remind you one more time not to disrespect them. We need to understand that God is doing a great work, that he accepts the Gentiles just as he accepts us. For church leaders, this means creating a communication process to flow information throughout the organization. We go into many discussions thinking, I know what's right, and it doesn't make any difference what you think. True reconciliation A convenient date, time, and place should be arranged with each person to listen to and record his or her views and concerns.

    That's an important learning experience for any of us who get into a situation in which people resist change. In other words, don't needlessly offend the Jews, but find your freedom in Christ and go on as Paul and Barnabas have instructed you. This includes praying that the the Paraclete with a capital P, the Holy Spirit, does His work in their hearts but also to get involved in practical ways, exhorting and counseling them to work out their differences. The pastor and church are usually thought as "safe" places to express angry feelings because there is often little or no retaliation. One of my idealistic tendencies is to think the best about all possible communities.

    For church leaders, this means creating a communication process to flow information throughout the organization. Church conflict occurs when people in the congregation put their personal ideas, thoughts, and motives above what is best for the congregation. I believe this is a more significant moment than even the Lutheran Reformation. Conflict that is dealt with, discussed, managed, and resolved can be good. The person should be one who will not take sides but be neutral regarding the issues and outcome.

Managing Conflict in the Church book

No one likes to get blindsided and caught off guard by unanticipated concerns — especially publicly! You see that in the church today: Do it my way, or I walk.

Throughout this debate, the cross of Christ, the blood of the Lord shed for our sins, the call to repentance, was never compromised. A basic communication skill can help us in that effort: stating areas of agreement before identifying where we disagree.

3 Ways to Manage Church Conflict

Halverstadt distinguishes his work from other books on church conflict, which outlines the following: a way of approaching conflictive situations that are theological and ethical; using communal attitudes and goals while intervening in conflictive situations; applying communal power for managing the conflict; finding common ground between the parties on an ethical process as a means to work through their differences; using interdisciplinary methods for gaining perspective; and showing the reader how they can manage conflicts themselves rather than hiring a consultant.

Finally, in verse 30 we read that they went to Antioch: "where they gathered the church together and delivered the letter. I've had to come to the realization that whenever two or more people get together and form a community, it will always be rather messy.

We think: It would be wonderful to be part of that congregation. We're becoming brittle and rigid, which is infiltrating our modern society, both in the church and beyond the church, wherever you look. For church leaders, this means creating a communication process to flow information throughout the organization.

You might be thinking, what could I conceivably get from that? These five styles are competitive, accommodative, sharing, collaborative, and avoidant.

Sometimes the Holy Spirit shows us people at their worst. The battle makes them better leaders, better Christ-followers and better people."Managing Church Conflict," by Hugh F. Halverstadt, addresses the question of whether conflicts can be "Christian." He argues that the key to making church conflicts "Christian" may be found in providing a faith-based process for differing parties to use; and he defines a "Christian" conflict as depending on which process is chosen for resolution, rather than the actual resolution of the issues.
