Heart of Peacemaking (online)
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. This is an online LIVE course delivered through Zoom over two evenings.
Allen is married to Jenny, they have 6 adult children, two grandchildren and live in the north-western suburbs of Sydney.

He moved into the Christian not-for-profit world in 2007 where he has worked and voluntarily served in organisations such as BaptistCare, IntegriCare, Bedford College, the Baptist Assembly Council and PeaceWise, where he is the Chief Operations Officer. Allen has been a Christian since age 15 and has been a member at Parramatta Baptist Church since 1991. He is a peacemaking work-in-progress and looks forward to continuing his peacemaking journey through sharing the PeaceWise principles.
Jane holds a degree in education, a reflection of her lifelong passion for learning and helping others to learn. She has served in the church in many capacities and enthusiastically embraces opportunities to engage people with the transforming truth of Christ.
