At a Glance
Sharpen and expand your coaching and mediation skills while learning how to handle challenging cases involving highly conflicted groups such as church-wide or school-wide conflicts.
“The process of helping people see their brother or sister as valuable and to see that sin in idolatry comes in many ways is a game changer for people to learn the love of God and how to love their neighbor.”
Who Should Attend?
Trained Christian Reconcilers! This is an advanced reconciliation practicum-style training and requires Coaching People through Conflict and Mediating People through Conflict (or equivalent training from Peacemaker Ministries) as pre-requisites. If you are a trained reconciler who is approached for advice or for help with these complex group-conflict cases, then this course is for you!
Large group conflict is the most complex type of case for a reconciler. This course will stretch you just as serving on a Group Reconciliation Assistance team will stretch you. You will experience a “real” case in the course with hundreds of pages of preparatory reading and analysis. The case study is based on an actual case with names and facts altered to protect confidences. Just as in real life, you will experience the feeling of being overwhelmed as the course is intense. At the same time, you will also experience how the Gospel can transform seemingly impenetrable hearts, underscoring that we are but His instruments in this ministry of reconciliation.
