The Heart of Peacemaking
An improved ability to be a peacemaker and respond well to the challenge of conflict requires a deeper understanding of ourselves, our relationship with God and the deeper things which drive our responses to challenging situations.
Please note: this course requires having done the traditional Personal Peacemaking or the new Everyday Peacemaking course.
In this training you will:
- reflect upon and practise foundational principles and skills learned in Everyday Peacemaking.
- gain a deeper understanding of the role of the human heart in more serious conflicts
- discover a powerful tool to understand the drivers of your and others’ behaviours
- become better equipped to respond well to challenging people and situations
- engage further with principles of confession and forgiveness
- more seriously explore the concept of a culture of peace and how you can support it in your community/spheres of influence
This training is suitable for all Christians wanting to be more deeply equipped to respond in God-pleasing ways to be a peacemaker, reconcile relationships and address conflict in their own lives.

Peter has served in Baptist churches in the area of Pastoral ministry for over 29 years. Pete trained as a church consultant and has served in numerous churches in that capacity for 15 years. Pete served the NSW & ACT Baptist Association, for 10 years as the Associate director for Church Development. In that role, and as a church consultant, Pete became involved in many situations of church conflict. He saw first hand the devastating effect that conflict has on the health of congregations. This created a great desire in Pete to find conflict transformation processes that had the ability to help bring positive change to congregations experiencing conflict situations.

He believes that this will help facilitate churches in truly experiencing "Cultures of Peace".
