Christian Resolution was established as a panel of Christian dispute resolvers to continue the legacy and relationships of Resolve (Christian Service for Disputes Resolution) Inc. Resolve was a widely recognised resource for churches in New Zealand from 1997-2016.
In 2010 Glyn Carpenter met Ken Sande, author of ‘The Peacemaker’ at Lausanne III, the international evangelical congress. The resources and services provided by Christian Resolution are based on Ken’s book and his more recent work in Relational Wisdom™.
In July 2021, Glyn asked Andrew Wilks, a former Auckland lawyer and trained mediator, to join the panel and to take over the oversight and day-to-day operations of Christian Resolution. Glyn passed away after a period of illness on 9 December 2021.
