Everyday Peacemaking (online)

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!

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.

Natalie Neubauer

Natalie worked long-term with Youth With A Mission, an international missions organisation. She facilitated several Discipleship Training Schools and led teams around the world to serve and to help the students grow in their own personal development.  She also led other teams within the organisation, finishing with leading a team responsible for getting a vessel deployed to PNG to bring medical assistance. She has a diploma in counselling and other certificates around counselling and training. Her background is diverse but her desire to be in the field of peacemaking came when staffing a peace camp in Kurdistan in 2018. Since then she has maintained a focus on peacemaking, is currently doing further study in Religion, Peace, and Conflict, and maintains involvement in the team she went to Kurdistan with, The Peace Collective. She is passionate about us as followers of Jesus knowing what is true for right relationships, and taking the risks to live that out because it is the best way to live and is how other people know God is real!  She loves the ocean, meals with people, film photography, and her family.

  • gain powerful peacemaking principles and relational tools
  • understand the biblical foundations of peace and reconciliation
  • discover gracious ways to deal with difficult people

This level of training is suitable for all Christians as we work together to promote peacemaking in our own lives, families, workplaces, churches and communities.
