Do I need to read it all now?
The chapter headings of the manual are self explanatory, and you will note that the chapters are grouped into three sections:
Chapters 1-7: Getting
These chapters give you all you need to know to organize your team, register it, and start working with your church leaders. Read these chapters as soon as you can.
Chapters 8-15: Doing
These chapters explain how and when to teach peacemaking, and how to begin working with people who are in a conflict (and which conflicts to avoid). A number of these chapters will develop your skills; it’s okay to skim through them now, but be sure to read them carefully before you start working with people.
Chapters 16-19: Running Your
These chapters talk about all the things you need to do to run a healthy ministry on into the future. They talk about things like common mistakes and getting support from Peacemaker Ministries. We suggest you also read these soon.
