Conflict Within Church Communities: Applying Biblical Principles

Anne Fiferzena Zumeta

People of faith have an extra resource to guide them successfully through conflict, if they choose to take advantage of it. For Christians, applying biblical principles – love, forgiveness, the “Golden Rule” – can turn a frustrating conflict into a satisfying resolution, and can make the difference between an uneasy truce and a reconciled relationship. The speaker, a lawyer-mediator, has been helping Christians resolve disputes outside of court for three decades and will describe how Christian peacemaking really works.

Anne Bachle Fifer is a mediator, facilitator, arbitrator, and mediation trainer based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Her mediation experience includes business, family, and workplace disputes, as well as church-based conflicts integrating Christian principles with the mediation process. She frequently conducts basic and advanced mediation training, and she has long been a mediator, trainer, and Certified Christian Conciliator with Peacemaker Ministries.
