Missionary Conflict: Destructive or Constructive?

EMQ » April–June 2022 » Volume 58 Issue 2

By David R. Dunaetz

Andrew and Brandon recently started a pioneer church planting work in a new field with their mission. Andrew thinks a coffee shop would be the most effective way to meet new people and develop relationships, while also providing a place for future meetings. Brandon believes a focus on hospitality and visiting people in their homes is more culturally appropriate because sharing meals is the normal context for developing relationships; such an approach also involves less financial risk. Their disagreement begins to intensify. Will this become a destructive conflict that will hinder their ministries, or could it be constructive and enable greater effectiveness?
