As leaders of faith communities, you carry the profound responsibility of guiding your congregations through times of turbulence. The 2024 election season and its associated threats—division, polarization, fear, and even violence—loom on the horizon, even within the walls of the church. In response to this challenge, Amplify Peace invites you to join with other leaders in being part of the solution.
Introducing Rising Above, our Pastors’ Cohort and Community. With the tagline “Reclaiming the identity of the church as the place for hope and healing,” this program offers a unique opportunity to enhance your peacemaking skills in a series of sessions, specifically designed with Christian faith leaders in mind. These easily transferable skills and strategies will allow you to lead through divisive narratives, engaging the opportunity to bear witness to the Love of Christ.
Our commitment to you: an initial eight-session learning journey and an ongoing community of friendship, encouragement, and support. As the election season unfolds in real time, you’ll be provided with critical tools, resource connections and a faith leader community to lead your staff, board, and congregation in transformative ways.
Thank you for forging unity and transforming your church/community.
This Cohort is for you and an additional leader from your staff who you choose to be part of a shared learning experience to bring back to your church/community.
