Pray that you will listen to understand, be open to learning, and live differently as a result of becoming a peacemaker.
Check out our list of great resources to learn more about how to become an effective peacemaker.

Once you’ve seen it, you can’t unsee it.
Join us on one of our immersive encounters, either locally or globally, engaging in historical and modern day narratives for a better understanding of the ways of peacemaking and peace-building. We will prepare you to “see” people, situations, and circumstances through the peacemaking ways of Jesus. We believe peacemaking has to be experienced and we will make it simple for you to engage. Below you will find a list of our upcoming encounters. Make sure to check back regularly for new encounters as we are constantly creating new ones!

Please step into our Immersive Encounter where you will engage with a woman whose life was displaced and whose journey to her new home in Mesa was more than difficult. In her home, she will make you a traditional Syrian lunch and share her story. Your experience will include learning about the wonderful food she has made, her journey from her homeland to being a refugee to finally being resettled in our area. You will experience a true person of peace and see resiliency at it’s finest!

Trip Status: OPEN
Holy Land Encounter
Join other women from around the globe who are leading in their homes, communities, churches and organizations as we embark on a unique spiritual journey of the Holy Land. Expect a “not so typical” trip that ushers in personal and communal transformation, where the history of faith meets a history of conflict.
We will walk where Jesus walked among the ancient stones of Jerusalem, Bethlehem, and Galilee to explore the Bible’s different themes of womanhood and how God calls us to the radical and counter-cultural way of living embodied in the Beatitudes, as peacemakers.
As influencers, we will also learn about the issues of power, persecution, politics, and possession that have divided the land in the present day. We will hear from a wide spectrum of voices, mostly female, across Israeli and Palestinian society, in order to experience the vastly different realities of Jewish, Christian and Muslim communities who call this land ‘home’, and how those differences present both opportunities and obstacles for peacemaking.
We will listen and lean in, even when it’s uncomfortable and especially when we disagree; we will learn beyond sound bites and rhetoric; we will be inspired by those who live amidst conflict everyday and yet still choose to amplify peace; we will be implicated about our own responsibility to address conflict and the unique role we can each play to bring restoration and redemption; and we will build deep relationships and experience the vibrant and joyful cultures of the Holy Land.

Native American Immersive Encounter: This experience will include a Friday/Saturday immersion that will take us to the Heard Museum in Phoenix as well as on an overnight trip to Flagstaff. We will be hearing stories from our Native American brothers and sisters, seeing exhibits to include the boarding school history, and visiting a reservation. There is a common feeling among many in this community that they have been the unseen among us. Let’s open our eyes and begin to “see”!
This immersive encounter is in the final stage of development. The exact date has not been set, but is scheduled for May 2019. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be contacted when the exact date and price is determined.
