When Church Conflict Happens

A Proven Process for Resolving Unhealthy Disagreements and Embracing Healthy Ones

You Don't Have to Dread Conflict

Every church will experience conflict at some point. But it doesn't have to destroy you. In fact, conflict can be an incredible opportunity, if you know how to seize it. Unfortunately, very few churches use the opportunity well, but your church can.

Michael Hare, PhD, has been helping churches recover (and even grow) from conflict for over 20 years, and now he can help you too. Learn:

  • how to recognize healthy and unhealthy conflicts
  • what the five levels of conflict are and why they matter
  • how to design an action plan that will succeed
  • how to prevent unhealthy conflict before it begins

With copious case studies and practical tools, you'll find it's surprisingly manageable to develop these new skills. Learn to lead confidently in the face of conflict and invest in your church's future today.

PLUS! Additional Resources in the back include:

  • Conflict management Style Survey
  • Conflict Assessment Tools
  • Interview Questions for Assessing Conflict
  • and more!

"Few things break God's heart more, and cause the hosts of hell to rejoice more, than conflict among His followers. My friend Mike Hare is well-qualified to prepare church leaders with practical intervention strategies (brought to life by case stories) that enable us to anticipate, analyze, and resolve conflict, moving step-by-step through processes that result in unity and blessing."
