A seminar for churches, schools, missions, businesses, and camps/retreat centers
 


Course Description: We all face inevitable conflicts in our friendships, homes, churches and workplaces.  These range from disputes between friends, to the contest of wills between parents, children and teens, to sharp disagreements at work over business goals.  Any leaders serious about growing a healthy organization face many potential conflicts as they try to mobilize people with varied personalities and gifts to work together for a common vision.  Learn biblical principles you can use to resolve disagreements and disputes in all areas of your life so you can grow in Christ, build a healthy organization and witness His power to your watching world.
