Details

This seminary responds to the concern of growing tensions and polarization during the last years which characterizes relationships in various countries and had influenced organizations at different levels. Frequently, collective failure to resolve conflicts gives birth to new threats that mostly disturb relationships and break trust apart. Fear is one element leading to risky divisions and demagogue practices pay their role.

Member churches are equipped with current theological understanding regarding conflict management, reconciliation, and peace building and count with resource persons for transformation in church and society.

This program seeks to better understand the theological aspects of conflict and reconciliation. Moreover, it aims to equip member churches with skilled leaders in conflict prevention and management tools. Participants will, at the same time, become part of a network of resource Persons for mediation and peace building.
