IN HIS BOOK The Making of a Leader, Robert Clinton states that “conflict is a powerful tool in the hand of God and can be used to teach a leader lessons that he would not learn in any other way…”
For Clinton, conflict is a learning process that is crucial in the development of a leader within the church. He points out that “God will use conflict to point out areas of character needing modification, to point out or confirm areas of strength, or to point out areas of character entirely missing.”
