Conflict can poison the life of a church. But it can also have a positive effect. Prepare your leaders for handling conflict—and thus protect your church—by discussing '"Conflict Above Ground,” an interview with Bill Hybels, pastor of Willow Creek Community Church near Chicago. This interview will train your leaders to see conflict in a new light and help them deal with it in a more biblical way.

You'll also find a second interview and several how-to articles, assessments, case studies, and devotionals from a variety of respected leaders.
