In a region where conflict is often either suppressed or manifested violently and in which people often lack access to training and education in healthy, peaceful, and constructive conflict resolution, it is very important to empower those who are already spiritual guides in their community: pastors and church leaders. The “Pastors for Peace” Program is a new program in which individuals, groups, churches, or Sunday School classes have the unique opportunity to sponsor one or more Ecuadorian church leaders, providing the financial support for them to receive an intensive CEMPROC conflict resolution training course, materials, and follow up assistance. The donor receives a letter from the sponsored church leader, as well as an information packet with photos and a report of the training. The cost for one church leader to attend a three-day intensive course in their own community, based on a minimum attendance of twelve people, is $55 USD. Groups may sponsor as many leaders as they wish. If your group is interested in making it possible for one or more Ecuadorian church leaders to become a "Pastor for Peace," you may download and print the form and mail it in with a check, or you may pay online with a credit card. To mail a payment, please download the form, fill it out, and mail it to us with the check enclosed. We will keep you updated (preferably by e-mail) as the Pastors for Peace course takes place. We look forward to collaborating with you or your group on this exciting project!
