The Graduate Certificate in Faith-Based Peacebuilding blends skills and practices for leading communities in times of conflict with reflection on the theological commitments embodied in these practices.
The certificate is designed for faith community leaders who want to respond more effectively to social conflicts as they arise in their community and those who seek faith-informed social engagement in the complex justice issues of their communities.
Gain skills and practices to identify, discuss, and lead communities through conflict. Blend Anabaptist perspectives on scripture, theology, cultural studies, and ethics with strategies to respond to social conflict.
