All services are administered professionally and confidentially pursuant to the Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation.

Christian Conciliation (Mediation, Mediation/Arbitration, or Arbitration) is an alternative to resolving disputes through the courts and/or secular alternative dispute resolution services. It provides a process for reconciling people and resolving the material or substantive disputes in a biblically faithful manner. The process is conciliatory rather than adversarial in nature–that is, it encourages honest communication and reasonable cooperation rather than unnecessary contention and advocacy.The Christian Conciliation process is outlined and governed by The Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation. The process provides for mediation and/or arbitration. Two distinctive differences of Christian conciliation are the pre-mediation work and preparation which the parties and mediator do, and the mediation process.

Christian mediation, mediation/arbitration and Christian arbitration have been used to settle a wide variety of disputes, including contract, employment, family, personal injury, landlord/tenant, real estate, business, intellectual property, estate, and professional conflicts, involving dollar amounts from zero dollar value to several million dollars or more.


Mediation / Arbitration


Mediation is a process in which parties to a conflict retain control and input into the outcome or settlement of the dispute. Mediation through the ICC uses a distinct process which encourages conciliatory preparation and process. The mediator facilitates discussion and assists parties in following a process but does not negotiate or advocate for a particular settlement Mediation/Arbitration is an agreement by parties to mediate the issues; any material issues which are unresolved through mediation are brought before an arbitrator. Agreement to this process assures parties of a resolution to material issues should any be unresolved through mediation. Arbitration is a process of dispute resolution in which the parties grant authority to an impartial arbitrator who hears testimony and arguments, receives evidence and issues a legally-binding decision to resolve the conflict.
