The mission of Peacemaker Ministries is to equip and assist Christians and their churches to respond to conflict biblically. We do this, in part, through our seminars and teaching materials. By God’s grace, we receive many inquiries from people who desire to teach and use our materials in various ways. This policy sets forth the manner in which people who are not on the Peacemaker Ministries staff may teach, adapt, and/or use copyrighted Peacemaker Ministries materials or excerpts from them.
Through this Policy
We are seeking to serve the Lord and His church by equipping and assisting Christians to respond to conflict biblically. By extending permission to others to teach and use our materials, we hope many people whom our staff could not reach will learn God’s principles. We intend that the latest versions of our materials be taught by godly people under the authority of their local churches, denominations, and/or ministries. We desire to wisely steward the resources that God has entrusted to us.
Integration of Peacemaker Ministries Concepts into other Materials
Peacemaker Ministries encourages others to draw freely on the concepts that we have developed to communicate biblical peacemaking principles. Quotations of up to 1000 words from our work may be used without alteration for ministry purposes without written permission. (By “ministry purposes,” we mean that an excerpt will be used within a church, ministry, school, Bible study, etc., and will not be for resale, i.e., in published form.)
We ask that you give proper attribution to the source of the quotation by listing the title, author, publication information, and our ministry name and web site. For example:

Quotations of more than 1000 words for ministry purposes or more than 200 words for resale require written permission.
