Be a Peacemaker in the midst of Conflict

A while back I had the opportunity to attend a Peacemakers Pastor Training with Ken Sande. His books on Biblical Peacemaking have been very helpful. I don’t know much about their conflict resolution services or other endevors. Ken has passed the baton of Peacemaker ministries and the organization continues to produce resources and training to help those in the midst of conflict.

The Path of a Peacemaker offers a simple, proven path to a lifestyle of peace. It guides you through an examination of your own personal story, identifying the origins of your hopes and fears. It invites you to understand and embrace God’s approach to conflict, take responsibility for your own part in conflict, and connect with others in a spirit of humility as you learn to listen first, ask for forgiveness, and move forward.

Resolving Everyday Conflict



Resolving Everyday Conflict is an eight-lesson study that unpacks the amazing things the Bible has to say about conflict and relationships. As you go through this study, you’ll find the powerful and practical answers you are looking for to forever change how conflict looks in your life.

The primary places this study will likely be used are:

The Church – Equip your church members and give them a tool for outreach to the community: This small group bible study will first provide the foundational biblical principles for relationships to your church members—perfect for use in your existing small group ministry. But this study also will help your church reach people that you might otherwise have trouble reaching—the people on the fringe of your church life as well as the unchurched in your community. By offering this study in your church or in other contexts (prison ministry, homeless shelters, crisis pregnancy center, etc.), you can give people practical help with an issue that is relevant—conflict—and teach them about Jesus at the same time.

The Workplace – Help employees deal with conflict at work (and everywhere else): Studying Resolving Everyday Conflict in the workplace has two key benefits: 1) It will help your team members by giving them practical tools to handle conflict at work and outside work; and 2) It is good for your organization—as your team learns to resolve conflict quickly and constructively (or avoid it altogether!), you’ll have a healthier and more productive work environment.

The Leadership Opportunity



Living Out the Gospel Where Conflict and Leadership Intersect

Even in the healthiest churches, conflict and leadership are interwoven threads–there’s no escaping those moments when tension surfaces in a leadership meeting, when you are leading your congregation through an difficult change, or even when you inadvertently create conflict yourself.

Yet these are the moments when leadership really matters.

The Leadership Opportunity
 helps leaders live out the gospel by providing solidly biblical and practical help for the common conflicts that all leaders face.
