Ministry can be challenging, especially when people are behaving badly or escalating conflicts. The Whole Church offers congregational leaders a way to resolve such difficult situations by first viewing the congregation as a whole, then interacting healthily with the congregation, knowing health in one area heals the whole community. The Whole Church offers a way to diagnose the whole congregation, and ways to bring calm, clarify a congregation's identity, create an effective congregational structure, resolve conflicts, handle difficult behavior, motivate change, address unconscious dynamics, and use the sermon all to support the congregation's health and the fulfillment of its spiritual mission.
