THE LOS ANGELES INTERNATIONAL CHURCH OF CHRIST

A MULTISITE CHURCH OF 6,000 MEMBERS

“By the end of 2012 a conflict occurred in one of our ministries that exposed a breech of trust and weakness in relationships between the leadership and a significant number of members. Though some progress was being made it became apparent that our internal resources could not be dedicated to the extent necessary to bring the situation to a positive resolution and time was moving on. As a result in the summer of 2013 Steve and Tricia Staten were contacted and asked to work with us to bring both their professionalism with their unique skill set and training in conflict management and an independent point of view for us to best move forward ...The Staten’s work ethic was admirable, they worked tireless to meet with members and staff to listen and provide guidance. During this process the leadership of the ministry underwent change and the Staten’s stepped in to the leadership role for several months. Steve’s transparency and documentation of the process helped everyone rebuilt trust that had been damaged. And he became involved in planning of the search for a new ministry leader for the group. … We fully endorse the Statens in their work and we are grateful for their help.”
