Transformative Church Mediation

Don't let conflict divide your efforts.

Transformative Church Mediation is now available for conflict that erupts in ministries, within church boards, or between staff or members of a local congregation. 


Using a relationship-focused technique to address conflict similarly to ancient Church behavior.

Mediation is the suggested process by Paul in 1 Cor. 6: 1-7. Mediators with a "Qualified Neutral" status adhere to clear ethical standards and public accountability.
