Teacher Prep | Youth & This Session
It’s never good when you scroll through your Twitter feed and you begin to read “coded” tweets. You know the true intentions. One of your youth is airing their grievances to the world. It gets worse when you realize the conflict is with someone else in your group. You will have conflict within your ministry. This should come to no surprise to you if you have been in ministry long. What you hope for in your ministry is that students will learn to deal with conflict in a healthy and healing way. The verses of Matthew 18:15-20 provide guidelines for your students to practice when they have conflict within their life. Model these practices as you deal with conflict and then ask students to follow the same rules. Celebrate the successes that come because of it, and it will be part of the group’s DNA.
