two people shaking hands


Alliance Peacemaking’s mission is to change the culture of the Alliance family so we resolve conflict in a God-honoring way. To do this we use a biblical framework and common language to approach conflict.

If we are God’s people, then we need to act like it, especially in conflict.

John Stumbo, U.S. C&MA President


Conflict is inevitable; how we handle it is not. God expects us to handle our conflicts differently than the world does. Alliance Peacemaking teaches how He wants us to deal with conflict.

Other Ways We Serve

Peacemaking is available to consult with districts, church leaders, and international mission fields free of charge by appointment. Please contact us for further information.

Church Intervention Mediation: Before a church conflict becomes irreconcilable, Peacemaking will help. We have experienced mediators across the country who will help the parties involved in an emotionally charged conflict work through their differences in a God-honoring way before a church split occurs. The earlier a congregation seeks outside help, the more likely a successful resolution will occur.

District/Institutional/Mission Fields: Peacemaking also offers mediation services for district issues, Alliance institutions, and Alliance mission fields.

1 Corinthians 6:1-7 tells us that if Christians take each other to court, they have already lost. AP offers binding Christian arbitration within The Alliance to resolve disputes that the parties have been unable to settle themselves. In most cases, arbitrators are Christ followers with a legal background.

White Papers
