Making Church Conflict Creative

With David Newman and Louise Corke

Conflict is normal in any community, including the church. The issue is not whether conflict should be happening but how to respond to the conflicts that inevitably arise. Developed by Bridge Builders Ministries, this two-day course will equip you with tools and strategies to learn and grow through conflict and bring transformation rather than division.
