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.

Our presenters

Ashley Saunders

 

Ashley Saunders  

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.

Paul Arundell

 

Paul has been involved in Christian education as a teacher, principal and administrator for the past 37 years. He loves the way that PeaceWise training and materials equip God’s people to transform conflict from messy crisis to Gospel restoration and reconciliation. His own early teaching career was saved from what seemed like a hopeless breakdown with his supervisor to an enduring friendship using Biblical PeaceWise principles. Now with PeaceWise tools, he has been blessed to be able to support teachers, students and church communities in building cultures of peace. Married with 3 adult children who all love God, he has a passion for remote hiking and outback touring in this wonderful country that we are blessed to call home.

Description

  • discover a powerful tool to understand the drivers of your and others’ behaviours
