The Heart of Peacemaking – Description
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.

Geoff has been involved with Peacewise since its early years. After undertaking Personal Peace Making training he was convicted of the importance and value of conflict resolution based on strong Biblical foundations in all aspects of life. He avidly engaged with all other available Peacewise training and was later invited to join the Peacewise Board as NT Director. In 2012 Geoff and his wife undertook an intensive Mediation and Conciliation internship in the USA. Geoff is trained as a lawyer and educator and has been actively involved in Christian Schooling for over 15 years. He also spent 8 years working with Fusion Australia (a Christian Youth and Community ministry) and is now Chair of its Board of Trustees. Above all things Geoff loves to help others grow in their understanding of God, his world and their place in it. Throughout his life journey God has continued to challenge Geoff to better understand God’s big story of redemption and restoration and to allow that to inform every aspect of life and work. He acknowledges that in this, as in everything, he is a life-long learner.
