You can avoid power struggles before they even start.
Your church can move from confusion to unity.
You can turn the battleground into fertile ground.
Why do church leaders often feel alone or overwhelmed by disunity? Church growth is stunted and members are dissatisfied because of conflict and chaos. Good people doing good things cannot overcome unhealthy church government.
Develop a biblical model of church governance. Move from a frustrated staff to fruitful ministry. Decrease time wasting and strife, and promote harmony and accountability. The government model you choose determines your church’s destiny.
