Working for Peace

WCRC member churches are involved in promoting peace in some of the most challenging areas around the world. Purposeful dialogue, refugee assistance, reconciliation processes, and grassroots accompaniment are four ways that member churches are working.

In all these areas, member churches are on the frontline of conflicts - and sometimes surrounded by them. The WCRC supports these initiatives financially, as well as through international advocacy and coming alongside them.

In Colombia, an accompaniment programme has been in operation for years, protecting the most vulnerable in this long-running conflict - and will continue to do so despite the recent set-back in the peace process.

On the Korean peninsula, purposeful dialogue takes place between Christians on both sides of the Demilitarized Zone - despite the pressures from political and military leaders - and advocacy for peace and reconciliation continues.

In the Middle East, assistance to Syrian refugees in Lebanon is combined with advocacy for a lasting and just peace for the entire region.

  • The WCRC is committed to developing the new generation of church leaders, especially in the Global South. The WCRC utilizes an array of programmes to nurture, mentor, support and challenge young leaders.

    The two most prominent of these are the WCRC's internship programme and the Global Institute of Theology (GIT).

    The next GIT, an intensive short-term academic programme, will be held in Germany in 2017, in conjunction with the General Council. 

    The internship programme gives opportunities to young people to work with the organization in order to learn about global ecumenism and the issues that are central to the WCRC's mission: Reformed theology and social justice advocacy. 

    Interns are encouraged to be interdisciplinary and explore all aspects of the organization's work, including the opportunity to meet people in other church and advocacy organizations.
