Reconciling a Pastor and Elder Board

Watch this Inspiring Story!

Bill Gaultiere (psychologist and co-founder of Soul Shepherding), Ken Baugh (former lead pastor of Coast Hills Church), and Matt Kearn (Co-chair of the Coast Hills Elder Board) share the story of their church reconciliation process.

We hear about conflicts between pastors and elders that go unresolved. Usually the pastor leaves the church and the people are left hurt and confused and don’t know how to talk about it.

Here’s an example of a pastor and elders who dealt with their conflict by seeking Christ together in prayer and conversation. They apologized, empathized, and sought to bless their church community.
