It's inevitable. We all experience it – even Christians: Conflict.
It is not unusual to view conflict as something to prevent or avoid. But what if conflict is really one way God shapes us? If so, we need better ways of approaching it. In this workshop we will look at the conflict we all experience, examine our own personal response, and build a toolkit to help us resolve conflicts with grace and wisdom.

Misunderstandings and conflicts are inevitable within communities, including church families and even church staffs. These challenges can become a source of understanding and blessing, and can be a powerful witness to God’s character. This one day Healthy Churches workshop will help us to become people of peace, as we identify ways to resolve conflicts with grace and wisdom.
In this day-long workshop we will work toward understanding the types of conflict we all experience daily, examine our own personal conflict style, and build a toolkit to help us resolve conflicts with grace and wisdom. It is not unusual to view conflict as something to prevent or avoid. Through this workshop we will see that although conflict is inevitable, it can lead to positive outcomes. Together we will learn how to find opportunities in conflict.
