All services are administered professionally and confidentially pursuant to the Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation.
Christian Conciliation (Mediation, Mediation/Arbitration, or Arbitration) is an alternative to resolving disputes through the courts and/or secular alternative dispute resolution services. It provides a process for reconciling people and resolving the material or substantive disputes in a biblically faithful manner. The process is conciliatory rather than adversarial in nature--that is, it encourages honest communication and reasonable cooperation rather than unnecessary contention and advocacy.
The Christian Conciliation process is outlined and governed by The Rules of Procedure for Christian Conciliation. The process provides for mediation and/or arbitration. Two distinctive differences of Christian conciliation are the pre-mediation work and preparation which the parties and mediator do, and the mediation process. Guidelines for Christian Conciliation
Christian mediation, mediation/arbitration and Christian arbitration have been used to settle a wide variety of disputes, including contract, employment, family, personal injury, landlord/tenant, real estate, business, intellectual property, estate, and professional conflicts, involving dollar amounts from zero dollar value to several million dollars or more.
