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!
Wayne Forward is the CEO of PeaceWise. With a background in Mental Health Nursing, pastoral ministry, missions and leadership mentoring and coaching, Wayne has seen the destructive impact that conflict can have on relationships personally and professionally. He has also seen the amazing power and testimony that comes when reconciliation happens through biblical peacemaking. As a national trainer and mediator for PeaceWise, Wayne brings a wealth of experience to helping others respond to conflict differently and experience why Jesus says, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” Wayne is married to Amy. They have three children. When not with PeaceWise, you will likely, find him cycling or training for an upcoming triathlon.
God has shown Hadyn time and time again the immense cost of relational distance and breakdown in families, churches and organisations. Alongside his finance day-job, Hadyn has been working in the field of measuring and building relationships for the last five years. Working through and practicing PeaceWise’s biblical peacemaking training and material has awoken in him a passion for living out the gospel as a peacemaker, and helping others to do the same. Hadyn is married with two boys whose homeschool curriculum includes PeaceWise Kids.
