With a church made up of people from all sorts of backgrounds, personalities, opinions, and walks of life, there are bound to be times when we find ourselves serving side-by-side with someone that we struggle to get along with. So what do we do? How do we minister well with someone who frustrates us, and what do we do when it becomes clear that it just isn’t working? And what does the Bible have to say about all of this? Today, Josiah and Andrew scratch the surface of this deep perennial issue that any of us who have spent time in church know all-too-well.

Josiah has served the Oakridge Bible Chapel family as one of its elders and one of its pastoral staff members since September 2018, before which he ministered as an associate pastor to a local congregation in the Canadian prairies. Josiah's desire is to be used by God to help equip the church for ministry, both while gathered (edification) and while scattered (evangelization).
