Christian ResolutionFAITHFUL WITNESS - RESOLVING CONFLICT
Providing resources, training, coaching, and mediation
for peacemaking and conflict resolution
based on Biblical principles
Conflict is inevitable – even in churches and the Christian community
Managed badly, it can be costly – to relationships, and financially.
But managed well, it can grow relationships, save money, and be a testimony to the ways and wisdom of God.
Christian Resolution provides resources, training, coaching, and mediation for peacemaking and conflict resolution based on Biblical principles.
Christian Resolution was established by Glyn Carpenter as a panel of Christian dispute resolvers to continue the legacy and relationships of Resolve (Christian Service for Disputes Resolution) Inc. Resolve was a widely recognised resource for churches in New Zealand from 1997-2016.
In 2010 Glyn met Ken Sande, author of ‘The Peacemaker’ at Lausanne III, the international evangelical congress. The resources and services provided by Christian Resolution are based on Ken’s book and his more recent work in Relational Wisdom™.
“Relational Wisdom is a game-changer in the field of conflict resolution”. RW equips people with skills which dramatically reduce the likelihood of conflict even occurring, and the ability to navigate conflict better if it does.
In July 2021, Glyn asked Andrew Wilks, a former Auckland lawyer and trained mediator, to join the panel and to take over the oversight and day-to-day operations of Christian Resolution.
