About the speakers:

A biography of Karl Dortzbach can be found here. Dr. Karl G. Dortzbach and his wife, Debbie, have been missionaries in Africa since the mid-1970s. Dr. Dortzbach currently directs the Institute for the Study of African Realities, teaches at the Nairobi Evangelical Graduate School of Theology, and labors for trauma healing and reconciliation (particularly in Liberia and Rwanda). Dr. Dortzbach co-authored Kidnapped with his wife, who was held for ransom by the Eritrean Liberation Front in 1974.

Ken Sande is president of Peacemaker Ministries and author of The Peacemaker, which has been translated into ten languages. He is passionate about bringing the life-changing power of the gospel and the wisdom of God's peacemaking principles into the lives of Christians and their churches. His early experience in engineering and law fueled his desire to dedicate his life to biblical peacemaking, resulting in his decision 25 years ago to found Peacemaker Ministries.

Ken has used biblical peacemaking principles to minister to parties in hundreds of conflict situations ranging from simple personal disputes to complex church, corporate, and legal conflicts. He has written numerous resources on conflict resolution and is in frequent demand as a confer­ence speaker. His wife, Corlette, who has homeschooled their two teenagers, published a biblical peace­making curriculum for children called The Young Peacemaker. The Sandes’ favorite family activity is hiking in the mountains near their home in Billings, Montana."
