Pilgrimage

Ready for Transformation? 

Be transformed, and become an agent of transformation.

When we live into a story greater than our own and engage in the truths and experiences of others different from us, we walk away transformed. We are transformed not only in the way we see the world and each other, but also in the way we understand our responsibilities within our own communities and circles of influence.  Pilgrimages have the power to transform communities for the benefit of all.  Are you ready to be a part of the transformation? 

American Peacemaking Pilgrimage

"When you encounter the truth in the story of someone who is different from you, when you speak face to face and listen to understand rather than listen to rebut, something powerful happens. Something changes within you."         Past American Pilgrimage participant

March 15-22, 2023

In a time of division and polarization, the American Peacemaking Pilgrimage explores how the seeds of our country's division were sown at the noble yet contradictory beginning of our American story. You will be immersed into a deeper understanding of our country's history and connected to leaders and visionaries building God's Beloved Community in some of the most difficult places while also learning to be a peacemaker in your own context.
Registration deadline December 15.

Financial Support Needed

Help ensure all who wish to participate, can!
Many who wish to participate in this pilgrimage and be equipped as peacemakers do not have the means to cover the full cost. We believe that this experience is too valuable to only be available for those who have the means to pay for it. We are, therefore, seeking funding to be able to offer trip scholarships for all who need them.
