Hi There, We're Peacemaker Ministries.

We help people navigate conflict and find healing in their relationships.

Equipping and assisting Christians to respond to conflict biblically.

Peacemaker Ministries is a non-profit, nondenominational ministry whose mission is to equip and assist Christians and their churches to respond to conflict biblically. We want to partner with people in conflict and help them navigate their conflict and heal their relationships. Christians are called to "love one another" and conflict often gets in the way of us doing that well. Peacemaker Ministries has spent decades developing an effective process to navigate conflict through biblical principles.

Welcome to Peacemaker Ministries! Let’s navigate your conflict together. Our relationships with God and each other are key to building healthy marriages, families, churches, workplaces, and communities. My hope is that you will experience the Gospel in such a deep and profound way, that you will never be the same. If the Gospel is lived out daily, our lives and our relationships will be transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ.

If there is any way we can serve you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The history of Peacemaker Ministries

Peacemaker Ministries was founded in 1982 by Ken Sande, originally under another name. In the 1990s, the ministry merged with the Association of Christian Conciliation Services and was renamed Peacemaker Ministries. The ministry flourished under Ken’s leadership, developing resources, training hundreds of Christians in conflict coaching and mediation, and assisting countless people to respond to conflict biblically. In 2012 Ken stepped down from leadership, and Dale Pyne became the new CEO. He moved Peacemaker Ministries from Montana to Colorado Springs and, over the next few years, strategically aligned it and positioned it for the future.

In March 2017, Dale stepped down, and the Board of Directors appointed P. Brian Noble as the CEO. Brian moved the headquarters of Peacemaker Ministries to Spokane Valley, Washington, where he and a creative staff are developing new resources for churches, marriages, and the workplace. He wrote The Path of a Peacemaker book, which was published in 2019. Brian loves to teach and travels around the country, presenting The Path of a Peacemaker in a wide variety of settings.

Excellent Leadership Since our Founding.

Our statement of faith.

We believe ...

... that the Holy Bible, consisting of the Old and New Testaments, is the only inspired, infallible, inerrant and authoritative written Word of God;


... that there is one God, eternally existent in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit;


... in the deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, his virgin birth, his sinless life, his miracles, his vicarious and atoning death through his shed blood, his bodily resurrection, his ascension to the right hand of the Father, and his personal return in power and glory;


... that for the salvation of lost and sinful people, regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely necessary;


... that a person is justified by grace alone, through faith alone in the Lord Jesus Christ alone;


... in the present ministry of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a godly life;


... in the resurrection of both the saved and the lost — those who are saved, unto the resurrection of life, and those who are lost, unto the resurrection of damnation;


... in the spiritual unity of believers in our Lord Jesus Christ and his church.
