What we aim to solve

Conflict can be found in every area of life: at home, in the workplace, with friends, family, and even strangers. If conflict isn’t handled well, it can lead to damaged relationships, or even a complete breakdown of any productive communication. Organizations don’t function well, families are torn apart, and people are left wounded and feeling alone. Peacemaker Ministries desires to equip and inspire people to walk through conflict in a healthy way through biblical peacemaking principles. This strengthens relationships, families, organizations, and communities for long-term success in whatever their vision is. Humble, forgiving individuals create atmospheres of peace for everyone around them and when conflict does arise – and it will – they can lead the way in walking The Path of a Peacemaker.

Peacemaker Ministries works to assist and equip Christians and their churches to respond to conflict biblically. We are fervently working to train all Christians in the world – that’s over 2 billion people - in their churches, marriages, workplaces, and communities.

There are four main ways we offer biblical peacemaking: Conflict Training - Peacemaker Ministries works to help families, nonprofits, and workplaces learn the tools of conflict reconciliation before conflict ever takes place using The Path of a Peacemaker courses. We offer several different trainings from a single evening to a full two-day seminar. A peacemaker expert walks attendees through “The Path” – a conversational, interactive, engaging, and proven approach to conflict. Conflict Reconciliation - When families, churches, and organizations are in conflict, it can make even simple tasks seem impossible. The conflict very often becomes more personal the longer it goes on, and without intervention, could have long-term repercussions. Peacemaker Ministries specializes in walking with these groups through difficult conflict – step-by-step – to resolution and reconciliation. Peacemaker Consulting - Often times non-profits get stuck, whether it be organizational structure, goals, or culture, and they need external guidance. Peacemaker Ministries brings the truth, speaks clearly, and shares our observations to help realign, and refocus those organizations. We are committed to providing these services to help boards, executive teams, staff, or volunteers look clearly at their cultural context, their policies, and other foundational documents. We help reveal where structures may be causing undue conflict and offer practical steps towards healthier approaches. Peacemaker Ministries does not offer legal services, we simply help navigate the complex organizational and relational structures of teams, organizations, and other nonprofits. Resources – For over 30 years Peacemaker Ministries has been developing and refining many resources that assist individuals in dealing with conflict. From webinars to a self-led guides that walk individuals from beginning to end through conflict, we have a variety of resources to aide you as you pursue peacemaking in your life, your church, and your community.

Peacemaker Ministries has over 30 years of peacemaking expertise, multiple published books, online curriculums, group studies, a live online training center, a weekly show, blogs, podcasts, and personal biblical counseling with trained peacemaking experts. We have dedicated ourselves to engaging people in so many ways so that as many people as possible can be equipped with our biblical approach to peacemaking. We know not everyone learns the same way, and not everyone has access to the same tools. By creating physical products, digital products and online access as well, we have created an international platform to reach the global church.

It is our vision that every Christian in the world be reached with biblical peacemaking in one form or another. We establish yearly goals, we review those goals, and adjust and increase them as we accomplish teaching peacemaking to more and more people throughout North America and the world. We keep a detailed report of monthly progress, report our efforts and progress to our board, who inform and influence the direction and strategies used to accomplish our vision.

Since our founding in 1986, Peacemaker Ministries has published three books, we’ve ministered in over 10 countries, we’ve helped millions of people through our resources, trainings, and reconciliation events, and we’ve seen organization after organization incorporate the biblical peacemaking principles we teach into their teams and culture. In 2019 alone we introduced over 4,000,000 people to peacemaking. Pastor Brian Noble our CEO is working to finish another book with Baker Publishing, which will offer a more refined approach to peacemaking, specifically to church and ministry leaders. We are working to create a comprehensive online video series for The Path of a Peacemaker, so that no matter where people are, as long as they have an internet connection, they can learn biblical peacemaking. That’s our main thrust, that by utilizing the advantages of the internet, Peacemaker Ministries can be anywhere in the world with the click of a mouse.
