Tired of being buffeted by conflict around you? Wondering what God is doing when peace is absent? This first course will help you focus on what God is doing in your everyday relationships and help you be someone who makes peace rather than fakes it or breaks it!
Josh is a Barrister and Mediator who lives, works and worships in Darwin with his wife Sarah and 5 young children. Josh serves as an elder of his local church Emmaus Road Christian Church, and trains/lectures in mediation and dispute resolution. Josh has served in ministry governance teams over the years in both the local church, for the Baptist Union of the Northern Territory, and currently for PeaceWise. Josh has had involvement with PeaceWise since 2012, and has a heart to see the Gospel of Christ brought to light in all areas of conflict - especially within the church. God said that the world will know that we are his Disciples by our love shown for one another. It's this that fuels Josh's great desire to let the world see Christ through loving and well handled conflict; interaction that demonstrates the power of forgiveness freely given by a loving God and shared by His people.
