What if our disagreements are the very place where Christ calls us to the deepest Discipleship?
In the pews and from the pulpit, churches across North America are facing increased pressures of division. From leadership changes to the sanctuary carpet color, every church decision can lead to the fear that congregants or their leaders will walk away from the church, or possibly the faith. Even when things seem to be going well, the unexpected or uncertain can limit a pastor’s ability to shepherd their community.
This time of increased polarization and disagreement does not have to tear our churches apart. Perhaps today’s conflicts are an invitation from God. Perhaps they are opportunities to increase our spiritual witness and live out the core vision and practices of the Gospel.
Cultivate a culture that holds Truth and Love together
Throughout Scripture, God is referred to as being both Truth (John 14:6) and Love (1 John 4:8). Too commonly, we see a false separation of these two, yet we know that neither love nor truth could exist without the other. WayFinder helps church leaders cast a vision and provides formative practices that foster a deeper love for God and neighbor while holding true to the commitments of Scripture.
Discover deep discipleship in the most unlikely place: conflict
Conflict is often seen as a destructive force that will tear a congregation apart. Many leaders will avoid or try to suppress this conflict when, in fact, it can provide profound opportunities to engage others as Christ would. Instead of viewing each other as opponents or enemies, WayFinder prompts leaders to recognize everyone as made in the image of God and prepares them to model this shared unity to the entire congregation.
Realign your desires with Christ’s
WayFinder helps you to align your personal desires with the self-giving love of Jesus, rather than just ending or solving a disagreement. When we draw close to the light and life of God, we move from trying to preserve our self-interest toward richer, more meaningful relationships with others, rooted in Christ’s love. Even in the most divisive situations, WayFinder can equip your church to hold true to this shared unity and create faithful steps forward that honor God and one other.
