Everyday Peacemaking

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!

Pete Davies

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.

Pete became involved with PeaceWise and has done PeaceWise training up to mediation level.  Pete's key interest lies in being proactive in training people in healthy responses to conflict situations and serves as a mediator for cases referred by PeaceWise.
