When Church conflict occurs, it has the ability either to divide a community or to glorify God. How we manage our conflict is a powerful testimony to the people in our churches and to the people in our communities of the reconciliation power that Jesus demonstrated for us at the cross. Pathway is committed to helping churches move from conflict to peace through Christian mediation.
“Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift."
FAMILY AND MARRIAGE CONCILIATION
Every family will experience conflict. Sometimes that conflict can carry on for many years without ever being addressed. At Pathway we help families to work through conflict and the hurt it causes to find peace and reconciliation through the gospel.
"Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you."
When conflicts arise within an organization or business the complexities and the size of the conflict can be overwhelming. A Pathway conciliator will walk with each of the parties involved through the various layers of the conflict to come to a mutual and workable agreement, avoiding the excessive costs and time associated with litigation.
"How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity!"
Addressing conflict on our own can often be a scary and confusing process. At Pathway we are committed to providing you with individualized coaching to help you approach and manage your conflict with grace and strength. Our coaches will walk alongside you each step of the way, encouraging and equipping you towards your goal of reconciliation and restored relationships.
"A wise person will hear and increase in learning, and a person of understanding will acquire wise counsel."
TEACHING AND TRAINING
Pathway would love to equip and empower your church or organization to live out more fully the ministry of reconciliation. It would be our pleasure to prepare you and your team for dealing with conflict biblically through participation in your church's Sunday services, or through full-day workshops, webinars or retreats. Please contact us for bookings.
"Preach the word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke and encourage—with great patience and careful instruction."
