Alliance Peace making

International Work

As Alliance people, we believe that we are called to respond to conflict in a way that is remarkably different from the world.

Why Alliance Peacemaking?

greetingsThe gospel of Jesus Christ gives us genuine hope in every difficult circumstance. Our role is to help you and your church grow in your understanding of God’s peace and to respond to conflict with grace and obedience. We want to help you foster a culture that reflects unity in Christ.

The Bible is filled with principles that are applicable to every kind of conflict. These truths provide a powerful and effective way for your church to bring a Christ-centered response to any type of dispute, including those among leaders, family members, businesses, and congregational members.

What part do I play?

People respond to a gospel that speaks to their deepest areas of conflict, and The Alliance can help equip you to be a practical messenger of God’s grace and peace. Every Christian is called and empowered by God to be a peacemaker.

Alliance Peacemaking provides training in personal peacemaking for your church through an engaging four- to six-hour interactive seminar (email us us for more information).
