The Young Peacemakers Academy will serve as a model for participants to see how Christian organizations can contribute to peace – in their personal lives and in community. In contrast to the narrative that casts religion as a source of division and strife in contemporary society, campers will learn about Peacemaking and Christian foundations for peace!
