The Assistant

A man who first pastored and nurtured a church brings in an assistant to help with the work, a hand-picked man. Later, both men do church planting work together for a couple of years, then return to the home church. A sharp disagreement arises over an issue they both view as a matter of principle, and about which neither feels he can back down. The disagreement is so sharp that they part company, but the church supports the assistant! (Acts 15:36-41)
