Heart of Peacemaking
An improved ability to be a peacemaker and respond well to the challenge of conflict requires a deeper understanding of ourselves, our relationship with God and the deeper things which drive our responses to challenging situations.
Kevin has over 25 yrs Pastoral ministry with a focus on personal application of Biblical principles into everyday life. He has recently retired as Regional Minister for Hunter Baptist Churches and currently is a BaptistCare Chaplain.
Kevin is also a founding Board member of HunterHarvest, Kingdomworks, and CityServe Charities, and is the PeaceWise Regional Ministry Coordinator in the Hunter. He has worked for many years in challenging and conflicted situations to see God glorified through transformed relationships. Kevin trained for ministry at Morling College & has degrees in Engineering, Arts and Theology. Kevin is a trained PeaceWise conflict coach and mediator, and is convinced that Biblical peacemaking skills are more essential than ever in today’s world.
Michael completed his pastoral ministry qualifications at Morling Theological College in 1998, and then served as pastor in churches for 10 years. The next decade plus has been spent as a Christian school chaplain, teaching the children and staff Peacemaking principles. These conflict resolution skills transformed Michael’s personal life during 2009/10, and he is enthusiastic about continuing to see this message of hope and skills for relationship restoration taught to others, which now also involves doing so within a new Pastoral position at Kurri Kurri Baptist Church.
