The Impact of Intra-Church Conflicts on Social Development with Particular Focus on the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe

Joseph Muwanzi, Eric. S. S. Makura

This study was concerned with determining the impact of intra-church conflicts on social development projects, but focusing only on the Methodist Church in Zimbabwe (MCZ). It examined the causes, types, effects of intra-church conflicts in MCZ and feasible resolution mechanisms were identified and adopted. Mixed- methods approach and the survey research design were used. Data was collected and generated through the use of questionnaires and interviews. The main cause of such conflicts, was found to be ineffective policy implementation which made it difficult to manage projects in the MCZ, namely, learning institutions (schools and training colleges), mission farms, funeral services, clinics and orphanage centres. Identified failed projects were Teachers and Nursings training colleges, Southern African Methodist University, Epworth District Hospital, Methodist Hospital in Southern Central African, Matthew Rusike Children in Mzinyati and Epworth Housing Scheme. The study recommends that the MCZ needs be a role model, have strategic measures and revisit its projects policy implementation for the benefit of church and entire community
