Ensure far-reaching, holistic change
We believe empowerment uplifts cultures, so we help communities by creating and supporting leaders within them. We develop vulnerable children, local leaders, and their community members into justice leaders by equipping them with education, life skills, and the DNA of peacemakers.
Invest in Local Leaders
In areas of conflict, very often the most basic needs go unmet. With pressures of food security, health, and physical safety, local leaders may not be equipped or even motivated to promote justice and build peace. In order to end cycles of violence, we all must protect vulnerable children, and to promote lasting change we must focus on developing leaders who care about the rising generation.
Together we can capacitate local leaders with training, mentoring and resources through a growing network of professionals, churches and agile NGOs.
Turn Children into Peacemakers
Rescuing children from soldiering, slave labor, and sexual exploitation is just the beginning. We also prevent this trauma in the first place by keeping them rooted in their communities. We fight together to make sure they get an education. Our local leaders can mentor them with the values of peace, love, justice, and hope. These brave local leaders bridge between governments and indigenous communities, build business, and grow communities that worship Jesus. And when these children complete their education, they in turn help sustain their communities as trusted peacemakers and entrepreneurial justice leaders
Turn Militants into Peacemakers
Every day we face rebel commanders, human traffickers, and cartel bosses. While they often perpetrate violence, we believe they are loved by God and harbor potential for good. Leading with love and listening without judgement can transform the hearts of even the most hardened of adversaries. Love Your Enemy is a ground-zero tool we use to engage with militant leaders. Over time, our relationships with these leaders can redirect them toward non-violence and peace.
Turn Yourself into a Peacemaker
The strategies and solutions we use in some of the darkest parts of the world are highly effective at helping you resolve conflict in your own life. Whether at work, home, or in your other daily interactions, you are capable of making great change. Using positive prayer, action-filled love, and spiritual blessing through our Love Your Enemy program, you can become the leader you need to be in your own community.

A Revival of Loving Your Enemies is Coming… and You Can Join

Dreaming with Leaders
Many organizations work within a prescribed—or a one-size-fits-all—approach to impacting their respective communities. Where these approaches can fall short is in failing to recognize and empower the most important vision of all: that of the local leaders…Learn more
