About

The ICOC Peacemakers Program teaches that conflict is an opportunity for reconciliation and church growth. By promoting learning, understanding, and practice of effective conflict management techniques, our curriculum aims to empower participants to navigate differences in a manner that reflects Jesus' disciples. Ultimately, the vision is to help cultivate a fellowship-wide culture where disputes are approached with humility, love, and a commitment to restoration, resulting in healing, unity, and growth for all of God's People.

Session Three
Saturday, September 28, 2024 - 10am-1pm (CDT)
