Whether in the home, school, community, church, or workplace, conflict is inevitable. The ability to address conflict in a win-win manner and to bring healing to broken relationships is crucial for all, particularly for leaders in the church.
We offer webinars, single-day workshops, and multi-day seminars on a variety of Christian peace and justice issues, including training events that help churches discover how conflict can be an opportunity for spiritual growth and reconciliation.
We provide mediation services where conflict has created division within the church, clouded its vision, and derailed its mission. We can help you confront those challenges that prevent your congregation from becoming all that God intends it to be.
The Lombard Mennonite Peace Center seeks to proclaim Christ’s good news, the gospel of peace and justice, and to be active in the sacred ministry of reconciliation, wherever and whenever we can.
The Lombard Mennonite Peace Center provides speakers and education resources for churches of all denominations on biblical peace and justice issues, as well as conflict transformation skills training and training for church leaders grounded in family systems theory. We also provide mediation and consultation services for churches, schools, and other organizations.
Three of next year’s five sessions of our Mediation Skills Training Institute will be conducted in person. Plan now to join us on June 13-17 (Fort Mill, SC), August 1-5 (Chicago area), or November 14-18 (location TBD). Details are forthcoming and will be shared soon on this website, once plans with the host churches have been finalized. Additional sessions will be conducted remotely via Zoom on March 14-18 and May 9-13, 2022.
