Instead of seeking uniformity within your team’s opinions, transform your minds and hearts into conformity with Christ.
Do you ever feel like you’re spending more time “keeping the peace” than serving your community? It can feel impossible to hold tensions among an organization’s staff, board, grantors, donors, and governing body while faithfully serving and advocating for the beneficiaries of your non-profit.
While it may seem counter-intuitive, division can be an incredible gift to your organization’s health. Through the Holy Spirit, we believe that conflict can become the arena within which we grow in Christ-likeness. This is the very place where we can live out our deeply held commitments to love God and one another better.
Navigate difference of opinion with compassion
Begin to more fully recognize each team member, board member, and donor as made in the image of God, regardless of their personal views or convictions. WayFinder calls your team to a life-affirming vision of Christian unity presented throughout Scripture to ensure your staff can feel seen, heard, and loved as they care well for those who are served by your organization.
Practice the self-emptying ways of Christ
We are called to pursue virtues that reflect the self-giving love of God, such as humility, gentleness, and patience. These virtues are especially vital for our ministry and outreach work in serving others well. WayFinder provides formative applications to practice these virtues in ways that propel us into deeper relationship with God and others.
Fulfill your mission statement
Mismanaged conflict can lead to relational, economic, and missional damages, such as distrust, gossip, departures, and burnout. Ultimately, these costs disrupt your ability to effectively serve your community. WayFinder prepares your organization and leaders to transform moments of division into opportunities that no longer disrupt your mission but actually increase your ability to be missionally attentive and faithful to your Gospel work.
