Statement of Interest
My interest in peacemaking began when my church home of 18 years was ripped apart by conflict. Through deep study into God’s Word, I learned what He had to say about conflict, reconciliation, restoration and healing. As a Certified Christian Conciliator™ it is my desire to serve the church beyond my own community.
I serve not only by providing conciliation but also by teaching peacemaking to others so that their love for Jesus grows and they are better prepared to serve Him. In II Corinthians 9:6, Paul reminds us that “whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.” It is the desire of my heart to share in the ‘harvest of righteousness’ promised if peacemakers will sow in peace.
