Conflict Causes and Cures Offers Conflict Management in Ministry

MAITLAND, Fla., May 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ In his new book, Conflict Causes and Cures ($18.49, paperback, 9781629522326; $9.99, e-book, 9781629522333) Mike Smith addresses three individual aspects of conflict within the context of churchprinciples, problems, and possible cures. The author shares his abundant knowledge and experience on this particular matter, and presents readers with case studies to support the facts. Smith empowers readers to extinguish the root issue of such conflicts, and to bring forth mediation and restoration to all parties involved.

"Conflict is serious, and needs the church's serious attention," states the author. "Every eight hours, a pastor is terminated. Every year, a thousand churches disband often due to conflict. Conflict Causes and Cures give Scripture references and biblical applications to help with this critical problem."

Author Mike Smith has served as pastor for seventeen years; as Director of Missions working with over a 150 churches for twenty years; as Director of Minister/Church Relations for major denomination Southern Baptists of Texas for three years; and now, he serves as president of Jacksonville College. Dr. Smith has a Ph.D. in leadership, majoring in conflict management. He has consulted over 3,000 conflict cases in the past forty years of ministry.
