Reconciliation Ministry is about relationships. Training is available on how to scripturally address the conflicts we all experience in daily life. Conflict coaching, mediation, and church conflict services are also available for specific conflicts. But Reconciliation Ministry is first and foremost about bringing healing and restoration to relationships fractured by conflict, through the proclamation of the gospel.
When sinful thoughts, words and actions cause damage to relationships, the Christian has the blessing and privilege to confess those sins for the purpose of hearing the healing message of forgiveness through Christ. Reconciliation Ministry helps Christians identify their own contribution, and that of others, to conflict and prepares them to either confess their own sin or to gently restore the person who has sinned against them.
Reconciliation Ministry is a lifestyle, not a program. The lifestyle of reconciliation is founded on gratitude for the forgiveness we have in Christ that moves the believer to serve others for the sake of Christ.
We are reconciled to God for the sake of Christ (2 Corinthians 5:16–21). We get to live in reconciliation with one another, also for the sake of Christ.
