Because sin entered the world, conflict remains a part of our everyday lives. Churches deal with conflict on a regular basis. Our Annual Conference acknowledges that communities of faith need shepherds to navigate them through times of conflict in order to transform difficulty into opportunity. The Annual Conference has intentionally invested in training for these shepherds, who are led by Rev. David Holloway and Rev. Mollie L. Shivers.
Conflict Transformation Ministers are men and women called to peacemaking and reconciliation in the name of Jesus Christ. Over fifty gifted, called men and women have received 32 hours of training from JustPeace in order to form district teams of Conflict Transformation Ministers. This first class of Conflict Transformation Ministers were commissioned today at Annual Conference. The Conflict Transformation Teams are now available to assist local churches in navigating conflict with faith, hope, and love. To read more about them visit the Conflict Transformation webpage.
