When we appropriately manage conflict, we not only resolve issues, but use it as an opportunity to grow and become Christ-like.
Reconciliation is the church’s process of using trained Christian mediators—who are neutral—to aid parties in conflict towards biblical resolution.
The facilitators are unbiased towards the parties, but not unbiased towards God’s Word. They guide the parties in God’s Word, the ultimate authority by which parties are encouraged to operate.
The mediators are selected leaders of the church who have a passion for helping people resolve conflict biblically and are trained and experienced in conflict resolution. Our mediators have attended the Conflict Coaching and Mediation Training provided by Peacemaker Ministries and some are Certified Christian Conciliators.
Believers are encouraged to use the process out of obedience to God’s Word. Matthew 18:16 stipulates that one or two others are used to help parties settle unresolved disputes.
All types of disputes are eligible for mediation, including marital conflict, contracts, property issues, or other relational issues, legal or non-legal.
The entire process is confidential and will not be shared with those who are not officially involved in the process.
