Every church conflict is unique and complex. If your church is in conflict, it is likely that there are many contributing factors. In fact, everything that happens in your church contributes in some way to health or dysfunction. Everything is forming people—either to be authentic followers of Jesus, or followers of something or someone else. Conflict allows us to see ourselves truthfully and to see the fruit of what we are forming.
While most conflict surfaces as a personal problem between two or more people, we have discovered that most church conflict has its roots in theological and spiritual dysfunction. That is, the church has stopped, or maybe never really started, functioning as the Body of Christ. Churches cannot restore fellowship because they lack the fellowship to restore. People would rather leave, or insist on rights, rather than be reconciled.
Your church conflict is likely the result of many interrelating factors. Metanoia Ministries has developed a unique approach to help you accurately identify and redemptively address the systemic roots of conflict so that true and lasting reconciliation may result.
