  • Conflict To Peace is a nondenominational peacemaking ministry. We are a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit program of a Virginia Corporation, Conflict Resolution and Conciliation Center, Inc., and supported by modest fees and tax-deductible contributions from individuals, firms, churches, and other charitable organizations.
  • Our services often involve a team of mediators drawn from lawyers, counselors, and dispute resolution specialists to meet with and assist people in conflict. For disputes involving domestic relations (i.e. marriage conciliation, custody, separation, or divorce) the team is always made up of a man and a woman.
  • We are guided by a Board of Directors and Advisory Board of respected attorneys, conflict resolution professionals, justice professionals, and others with a heart for peace.
  • We have over a dozen Christian conflict resolution professionals that serve our clients.
  • We subscribe to the Institute for Christian Conciliation’s Standards of Conduct for Certified Christian Conciliators and the included statement of faith, as well as the Judicial Council of Virginia’s Standards of Ethics and Professional Responsibility for Certified Mediators.
