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.
Ashley Saunders has seen the destructive side of conflict - as Solicitor and Pastor; and has also seen conflict redeemed to God's glory. Now Australian CEO of Christian aid and advocacy ministry, Barnabas Fund, he has acted as a mediator and trainer for PeaceWise since 2010 and deeply believes in the power of biblical peacemaking. Ashley was admitted as a Solicitor in NSW in 1983 and prior to becoming a pastor, he also served as a lecturer in aspects of Contract and Industrial Law, and as an alderman.
Bronwynne Greenway has been involved with PeaceWise since 2010 and has a passion for helping people reconcile with each other and God.

Over the years she has trained for PeaceWise across Australia as well as conflict coached and mediated many people in personal conflicts, marriages and families. Working with conflict led her to go back to uni for further training, and she continues to work in ministry teaching the Bible and working with individuals. Bronwynne has been married to Stuart for 32 years and they have a growing family with their three adult children.
