Pray for Dan and Sharon Buttry, Global Consultants, working for peace and helping transform communities all over the world.December 17, 2014
One of the goals of American Baptist International Ministries is to help people to pursue peace, justice and reconciliation through ministries of conflict transformation and education, as well as by standing with and serving the victims of conflict. This goal is led by Dan Buttry, who serves as an International Ministries global consultant for peace and justice. Dan works with International Ministries missionaries and national church partners around the world to deal constructively with conflict situations. These conflicts may be social and political conflicts within a country, or they may be conflicts within the national church bodies that negatively impact Christian witness.
Dan trains church and community leaders in conflict transformation skills, utilizing experiential education methodologies and Bible study. He consults with church leaders about conflicts plaguing them, and in some situations he may participate in mediation teams between conflicted parties. Dan also explores ways for people interested in conflict transformation to accompany him and develop training and facilitation skills alongside him.
As a Global Consultant for Community Transformation, Sharon Buttry provides consultation and training of community and conflict transformation at the request of IM global partners, primarily in coordination with and complementing the work of her husband Dan
