Presented by      AoR       for      ICC

Welcome to Ambassadors of Reconciliation's third international conference.  This year we are collaborating with the Institute for Christian Conciliation to bring the world of conciliation together. We are excited you are here! We will be meeting in St. Louis, MO. With great local attractions, St. Louis provides many exciting opportunities for sightseeing, activities or just relaxing.

Our conference is packed with inspirational speakers  and dozens of educational workshops led by peacemaking experts and centered on God, His Word and His plan for cultivating lifestyles of reconciliation.

 


A Life-Changing Event!

Whether you are new to biblical reconciliation or you have been through training and already serve as a reconciler, this conference has something for you! This conference will include opportunity to attend any or all of our seminars and training plus much more!  Here are a few reactions from previous attendees:

"My sister and I hadn’t talked for two years. Following the seminar, I took the first step and now we’re reconciled."

"Seeing conflict as an opportunity helped me to stop running away from my family problems!"

"I asked my employee for forgiveness, which led to a discussion about my faith in Christ. Now he wants a copy of the Bible study I attended!"

"You don’t know how much this changed my life – just ask my wife and children!"

You will be challenged in the same way to live, proclaim, and cultivate lifestyles of reconciliation in the family, workplace, and church.
