Training: Opportunities to Grow Like Christ
Path of a Peacemaker Seminar
Scripture clearly states Christians are to be known by their love (John 13:35) and peace (Romans 12:18). Sadly, however, most of us do not know how to respond biblically to tensions in our lives. What is your first reaction in a tense situation – between you and your spouse – an issue with your child’s teacher – your neighbor? Where should you start? How do I get the log out of my own eye? What should our relationships look like after we forgive? The Path of a Peacemaker Seminar is interactive. Learn, role-play and apply the basic biblical peacemaking skills when a situation arises.
Conflict Coaching Training
After going through the Path of a Peacemaker Seminar – do you feel God calling you to help others? Conflict Coaching Training is essential for your church counselors. As a Pastor, how much of your time is spent counseling and coaching members in their marriages, work issues, etc. How much seminary training was available at the time? Learn aspects of effective,biblical conflict coaching; including gathering data, assigning homework, and applying Scripture to the heart. Learn to provide encouragement, godly advice, and prayer support to an individual struggling in the midst of a conflict. Help someone get the log out of their eye, to enable them to go to his brother to help him remove the sliver from his eye, and be restored.
Mediation Training brings to life the principles and concepts learned in Conflict Coaching (coaching one party), develops skills, and introduces the processes for reconciling two or more people who cannot resolve conflict on their own. Participants have the opportunity to work through detailed case studies and role plays based on actual conciliation cases. This training, provided by experienced conciliators, ups the training from individual to what to expect in group dynamics. You will learn how to level the playing field – making sure everyone is heard equally, you will learn the benefit of private caucusing, of assigning homework, of the profound importance of an awkward silence, how to help the individuals to relate to each other again.
