Bruce Burgess is the National Director of PeaceWise and is Australia’s first Certified Christian Conciliator™. He holds degrees in Arts, Law, Christian Studies and Theology. Bruce’s peacemaking work has led him to become involved in teaching and working with schools, workplace disputes, church and para-church based conflict and victim-offender cases. He has also served as a consultant and trainer for the Baptist Union of NSW and ACT and the interdenominational ministry organisation Christian Growth Ministries, and is a visiting lecturer for Morling College in the area of Christians and conflict. Bruce attends St Matthews Anglican Church, West Pymble.
“I believe serving PeaceWise is the most strategic thing I personally can do to serve the church and bring honour to God, with all the hope and health that the ministry of reconciliation brings. It’s not just about being the flying doctor service when things go wrong – it’s about helping ordinary Christians learn how to deal redemptively with conflict in their own lives and in the lives of others, with all the potential witness to Christ and glory to God that this entails.”
