A Common Problem
We all have conflict. It’s usually not the big blow up — it’s more like the tense conversation around the breakfast table or the difficulties with an angry neighbor, an overbearing boss, or a moody teenager. These everyday conflicts build up walls and tear down relationships wherever they occur — at home, at work, or anywhere in between.
I offer seminars in the basic principles of peacemaking using the Peacemaker Group Study. This seminar is a dynamic eight-lesson study which will challenge and equip people to deal with conflict according to principles from the Scriptures. It will allow individuals to better understand God’s plan for their lives in the area of conflict and help them to be biblically faithful in how they respond to the conflicts in their own lives and families, within the church, and in their community. The result is the building of a culture of peace leading to the unity, which Christ prayed would become the witness of those who believe.
Who is the Seminar for?
- Core church members and leaders
- People who attend church but haven’t really connected yet

What does it include?
The format of the seminar combines short presentations of core teaching elements with interactive group participation using adult learning principles.
