International Peacemaker Request Form

2015 International Peacemaker Dates: September 25 - October 18

International Peacemakers, a ministry of the Presbyterian Peacemaking Program, invites leaders from our partner churches around the world to share their experience as peacemakers. Understanding peace and justice concerns of others around the world will inspire, equip and connect Presbyterians in transforming cultures of violence into communities of peace. The itineration of International Peacemakers is intended to enhance the ministry of PC(USA) mid-councils, colleges, seminaries and institutions.

This year's International Peacemakers will come from:
the Armenian Diaspora, Congo, Cuba, India, Iraq, Palestine, Rwanda, South Africa, Sri Lanka, and Syria.

They will bring unique experiences and stories from their work in the following areas:
a. Addressing the root causes of poverty, particularly as it impacts women and children
b. Working for healing and reconciliation in cultures of violence and brokenness
c. Sharing the Good News of God’s love in Jesus Christ
d. Responding to natural and human-caused disasters
e. Embodying and advocating for God’s vision of a just and peaceful world

Cost: $450.00 (All airline travel is included. Hosting entities plan schedules in their regions and provide housing, local transportation, and all meals)

Applications will be received March 1-June 1, 2015. 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. After June 1, a few peacemakers may still have availability in their schedules. Please contact the Peacemaking Program for details.
