Global Anabaptist Peacemaker (GAP)
- Thursday, June 16, 2016 (All day) to Friday, June 24, 2016 (All day)
Global conflicts, droughts, GMOs, borders, walls, climate change, and violent wars: How do you respond to these issues? Global Anabaptist Peacebuilders are young adults from across the country who gather for a week to learn what it means as an Anabaptist to follow Christ in an increasingly interconnected world. Learning at the GAP Institute takes place in the context of the Central Valley of California, a living laboratory of globalization ripe with opportunities to learn. The GAP Institute provides you with the opportunity to venture out of the classroom and experience the world around you, giving you tools to take back to your own communities. Courses are designed to invite you to engage in modern issues from theological, economic, and environmental perspectives. Field trips, activities, and hands-on experiences make
engaging difficult issues exciting and meaningful and give participants the framework to take action.
