This project centers on developing and teaching a Bible-based conflict management program for Colorado Springs Korean Baptist Church. Chapter 1 describes the purpose, goals, context, rationale, definitions, and limitations of the project.
Chapter 2 presents the biblical and theological foundation for the conflict management program. In this chapter, Genesis 4:3-8, Psalm 139:1-13, Acts 15:13-35, Romans 12:18, James 3:1-6, and 1 Corinthians 1:10-31 are shown to be the best resources for conflict management.
Chapter 3 presents theoretical and practical issues surrounding conflict management in churches. In this chapter, Peacemaker Ministries brings value to the foundation of a Bible-based church conflict management program. The DISC Personality Model supports this project by understanding the church member’s behavior in conflict circumstances. Communication models further assist the project by helping one to discover how good communication principles aid in resolving church conflict.
Chapter 4 outlines the methodology used during the course of the project and explains the training and evaluation used during the fifteen-week period.
Chapter 5 offers an evaluation of the project’s purpose, goals, strengths, and weaknesses. Possible improvements and other reflections on the projects are also given in this chapter.||en_US
