Conflict is an inevitable and normal part of life, occurring in the home, church, school, and workplace. Mediation Skills Training Institute equips pastors and other church leaders with the skills necessary to deal effectively with interpersonal, congregational, and other forms of group conflict. Active and practical in focus, the daily sessions emphasize hands-on skills training and real-life role-plays based on the kinds of conflicts faced by participants.

A $200 tuition discount is available for all sessions. Detailed information, including discount deadlines and a registration form, is available on the current MSTI brochure.

While holding these events in person would have been our first choice, concern for the health and safety of everyone involved compels us to proceed remotely via Zoom. We invite you to enjoy MSTI in the comfort and security of your home or office (and save money not having to pay for travel and lodging!). We pledge to make the necessary adjustments so that we all may grow together in knowledge and grace. Thanks so much in advance for your patience and understanding!
