Abstract:Intragroup church conflict developed in the Liberia Annual Conference (LAC) of the United Methodist Church (UMC) in the 1980s. Therefore, this study sought to find out the causes of the conflict and recommend strategies for resolving group conflict within the conference. The research used criterion-based sampling. Ten ordained elders from the Liberia Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church were selected as participants. These participants completed a researcher-designed semi-structured interview protocol with open-ended questions. The questions sought to discover the root causes of the bishop-for-life conflict as the first major intragroup church conflict in the LAC/UMC. The study demonstrated that the intragroup church conflict erupted the peace of the conference. Subsequently, the incumbent bishop understood the passing of the life tenure vote as a conflict resolution model. Also, the church has no effective ways of dealing with intragroup church conflict and may not be able to resolve conflict. The post-colonial African chieftaincy practice has been responsible for the way in which conflict has been handled.
