David Dunaetz, M.A., was a church-planting missionary in France for 17 years, so his research focuses on interpersonal conflicts in Christian organizations such as churches and missions. He especially focuses on conflict processes that can either increase or decrease an organization’s effectiveness in carrying out its mission, and this research is done from a social and an organizational psychology perspective. His ultimate goal is to help Christians better love and serve God and one another in whatever organizations they find themselves.
