Participants in an LMPC training event have returned to their churches better equipped to minimize or even prevent the damaging effects of congregational conflict. Below are sample comments by clergy members from various denominational backgrounds whose ministry was profoundly blessed by the knowledge and skills they gained at our Mediation Skills Training Institute and other training programs from LMPC.
