Event description

Description

Just beneath the headlines that speak of conflict, injustice, and violence, a restorative movement is underway. It’s a global groundswell made of people who are daring to join God in remaking the world. For four days this September, 100 of us will gather from around the globe with stories to tell, tools to offer, and a shared vision to pursue. The Global Immersion Project is convening the movement and we’re calling it the Everyday Peacemaking Summit.

About The Global Immersion Project
Global Immersion is a peacemaking organization that is training people of faith to engage our divided world in restorative ways. Through our interactive and immersive programs we are galvanizing and mobilizing a movement of peacemakers who are actively joining God in remaking the world.

The Summit’s Objectives
Within some of the world's most conflicted regions, we’ve trained thousands of US-based faith leaders to live, love, and lead as Everyday Peacemakers. The time has come to bring the movement together to strengthen our relationships, experience renewal, learn from best practices, and advance the movement forward.

This Gathering is For...
…those of us who are working toward peace around our tables, on our streets, and in our world. It’s for the poets, parents, pastors, and everyday people who dare to believe that peace is possible and want to be a part of making it real. It’s for students who are disillusioned by a faith marked by comfort & safety and are searching for one that is defined by creative love. It’s for everyday people who are trying to figure out how to love God, self, neighbor, and enemy in our divided world. This is a gathering for those of us who believe that the world is worth remaking.

Dates & Location
On September 19-22, 2019, we’ll convene at Puerto Nuevo Hotel & Villas, an oceanside resort located just south of Tijuana, Baja California. Registration will begin on Thursday afternoon, September 19th and the Summit will conclude just before lunch on Sunday, September 22nd.

The Programming
The Plenary Talks, featuring our international peacemaking partners, will offer diverse perspectives on peacemaking in order to help us understand our relationship with power and equip us to navigate it restoratively. The Workshops, featuring world-class facilitators, will offer capacity-building training on how we grow in self awareness, disarm the violence that lies within us, and, utilizing the Enneagram, discover our distinct contributions to the Everyday Peacemaking movement. The Curated Conversations, featuring the voices in the room, will create the space we need to connect the movement, voice our questions, learn from one another, and generate new ideas.

Because of the Summit...
…the Everyday Peacemaking movement that is already underway will grow deeper, younger, and wider. The faith-based peacemakers who gather will become a linked coalition of practitioner-ambassadors throughout the country and world who will further decentralize the movement, innovate the resources, create the artifacts, initiate the gatherings, establish the alliances, and create the art that will point to the world being remade. The Summit will be the fuel that transforms the glowing ember of peace into a restorative fire.



What to Expect and Why You Should Come:

  • First global convening of the Everyday Peacemaking movement

  • The location: We will be staying at Puerto Nuevo Hotel & Villas right on the Pacific Ocean and with all the amenities that make for relaxation and fun.

  • The renewal: Whether it’s listening to the waves of the Pacific, receiving spiritual direction or having a rich conversation over a drink, this will be a space for your personal restoration and renewal.

  • The training: We will create space for hyper-relatonal, workshop style learning from our network of international peacemakers and local practitioners.

  • Advance the movement: The Everyday Peacemaking movement isn’t about one person or personality, but a collective of people giving their lives to God’s restorative mission. This will be a time to discern and advance the future of the movement together.

  • It’ll be like a family reunion! If you’ve been on one of our Immersion Trips, you’ll not only get to re-connect with the peacemakers who invested in your formation, but with other alumni who have been on a similar journey as well.
