Training offered by the Center aims to equip both the inexperienced and experienced in learning to live reconciled lives that affect our surrounding communities. Our training will range from building the personal skills of a peacemaker in everyday life to learning to be involved in community peace building and mediation. Learning to be a peacemaker or activist also includes learning the ways of nonviolence and conflict management skills.
Out of the heart of our faith and its vision of peace, we want to offer a variety of types of training and consultancy work that equips each one for the world we live in today. We have learned through our personal journeys that walking the way of peace brings change and hope as we see bridges of relationships built in conflicted areas. Peaceful lives and peaceful communities are possible as we put into practice the best of our Christian faith.
We want to be able to serve others through offering consultancy and internship programs that equip others to train peacemakers as well.
Here is a sampling of some of the courses we will be offering:
What does it mean to be a peacemaker?
Living confidently in a conflicted and diverse society.
In this 9 - 12 hour course we seek to think biblically about peace and reconciliation, and to consider how we can live practically as people of peace, agents of reconciliation and healing in diverse and sometimes conflicted places. This course can be run as a six week course for a church or home groups, a Lent course, or similar. It can also be run over a Friday evening and all day Saturday, or over two Saturdays.
Kingian Nonviolence: Two day, Executive briefing
This 10-hr session will provide an overview of the Kingian Nonviolence approach, including lessons from Dr. King and the US-led civil rights movement, and its values and skills, enabling you to contextualize some of these lessons in your own life and community.
This day workshop based on the work of Dr. Robert Enright is an introduction to a process of forgiving that is helpful during life’s difficulties or is helpful in being equipped to listen to others.
Living Well in Turbulent Times
This day long Quiet Day is centered around learning to seek to be at peace in the times we are living in.
