What is Christian Conciliation?

A Road to Reconciliation and Resolution

‘Make every effort to live in peace with all men . . .’ Hebrews 12:14 & 15
‘If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.’ Romans 12:18

The Three Common Steps of Christian Conciliation

  1. One or both parties may receive individual counseling/coaching on how to resolve a dispute personally and privately using biblical principles.
  2. If private efforts are unsuccessful, the individuals may use mediation, a process in which one or more mediators meets with them to promote constructive dialogue and encourage relational reconciliation and voluntary settlement of their differences.
  3. If mediation is unsuccessful, the parties may proceed to Christian arbitration, which means that one or more arbitrators will hear their case and render a legally binding decision.

Types of Disputes in Christian Conciliation

Christian conciliation is effectively used to settle a wide variety of disputes and relational conflict, including contract, employment, family, personal injury, church, landlord-tenant, real estate, creditor-debtor, and professional conflicts. The monetary claims in these cases have ranged from nothing to several million dollars.
