2023 Sowing Peace Annual Conference

30+ Sessions Designed to Improve Relational Wisdom, Peacemaking and Conciliation Skills

2023 Sowing Peace Conference

RW360's Sowing Peace Conferences are designed to strengthen four key relational disciplines: relational wisdom, biblical peacemaking, RW skills coaching and Christian conciliation.

This interview between Kirk Cameron and Ken Sande provides an overview of these disciplines and illustrates how they can be used to strengthen marriages, promote unity and heal divisions in the church and resolve lawsuits between Christians.
