Alliance Peace making

International Work
“If we are God’s people, then we need to act like it, especially in conflict.” — John Stumbo, U.S. C&MA President

Alliance Peacemaking’s (AP) 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.


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

Level 1

Resolving Everyday Conflict

This one-day seminar lays out the basic biblical principles of peacemaking and how God uses conflict to transform our lives. The training is for both leaders and laypeople.

Fee: Set by district/church

Level 2

Conflict Coaching

If you are a Christian leader (ordained or lay), you are already coaching. This two-day live seminar equips you to coach better from a biblical standpoint to help another person see and resolve their conflict from a godly perspective. Certified conflict coaches become resources for their churches.

Fee: $275 ($250 early bird)

Level 3


This is a combined online cohort-style training followed by a live two-day hands-on seminar that prepares skilled conflict coaches to successfully mediate conflicts at their churches. Trained AP mediators are resources not only locally but also in their districts and regions.

Fee: $575

AP 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, AP 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: AP also offers mediation services for district issues, Alliance institutions, and Alliance mission fields.


1 Corinthians 6 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.
