You’ve never known a church without conflict. That’s because there’s never been a church without conflict. Yet many churches remain under-equipped with the tools to make peace.
Curtis Heffelfinger offers one of those tools in his new book, The Peacemaking Church: 8 Biblical Keys to Resolve Conflict and Preserve Unity, published by Baker Books. Since 2003 Curt has served as the pastor-teacher of Orlando Grace Church in Florida. He joins me on The Gospel Coalition Podcast to explain how churches can make peace, why this work is especially difficult for Reformed believers, how we can head off conflict before it starts, and why trouble so often starts with music leaders and youth ministers, among other topics.
