Blessed are the peacemakers,Matthew 5:9
for they will be called children of God
As Christians who have been reconciled to God through Christ, we have been given the ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor 5:17-21). And as Ambassadors of Christ, God calls us to the share the message of reconciliation in the lives of people around us. To make that most of that opportunity, join us in the two-day ICC Conflict Coaching workshop that has prepared thousands of people to be peacemakers. This course equips and encourages Christians to assist others to resolve conflict in a biblically-faithful manner.
How prepared are you to encourage a friend, family member or coworker to listen calmly before responding with harsh words?
“My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry.” (James 1:19)
Do you have the skills to help others craft an appropriate and sincere apology?
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
When a friend is caught in bitterness, can you confidently help that person to extend forgiveness that heals and builds long-term reconciliation?
“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”(Colossians 3:13)
The ICC Conflict Coaching practicum starts with pre-course reading and on-line homework. Then you’ll participate with others in a moderated two day workshop. Your instructor, Gerry Dagonese, lawyer, mediator and Certified Christian Conciliator (TM), will share peacemaking tips and wisdom honed in coaching many others through all kinds of conflicts.
Along with fellow students, you will be coached by Certified Christian Counciliators as table coaches while you role play real life conflict situations. As you learn to apply God’s Biblical peacemaking principles you will become better equipped as an ambassador of Christ in the ministry of reconciliation.
