What We Do

About the International Peacemaker Program

An overview of the program

In an increasingly conflict-ridden and fragmented world, the God who grants peace and wholeness calls Christians to understand and address the root causes of violence and injustice so that we may share in mending the brokenness that exists in our world. Peacemaking is the human response to God’s gift of peace giving. The Presbyterian Peacemaking Program invites leaders from our partner churches around the world to share their experiences as peacemakers in their own lands.

As these International Peacemakers share their stories, they help us to understand the peace and justice concerns of others around the world while giving insights to those in our own communities. Moreover, they broaden our sense of God’s inclusive family and so better equip us to build a culture of peace and nonviolence for all God’s children.

DATES for THE 2014 PEACEMAKERS

Peacemakers will be available for visits this year between September 19 - October 12.  They will meet together in Louisville at the Presbyterian Mission Agency before and after their itineration.  Date preferences for visits may be indicated on the application form.

International Peacemakers / Mission Co-Worker Partnership

Thanks to a collaborative effort between the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program and World Mission, some International Peacemakers will be accompanied by PC(USA) mission workers. Together they will share stories of how churches in these countries live out the Gospel. Our hope is that this will deepen and broaden the faith life of the Presbyterians who hear these stories.

REQUEST AN INTERNATIONAL PEACEMAKER

International Peacemakers are available to mid-councils*, Presbyterian colleges and seminaries for itineration through the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program. Requests for International Peacemakers must be made through your mid-council's peacemaking or mission committee.  Requests will be honored on a first-come, first-served basis.with preference given to first-time requests and those who have not hosted an International Peacemaker in recent years.
