Global Anabaptist Peacebuilders are young leaders from across the country who gather for a week to learn together what it means, as an Anabaptist, to respond as a follower of Christ in an increasingly interconnected world. Learning at the GAP Institute takes place in the context of the Central Valley of California, a place ripe with opportunities to learn. The GAP Institute takes you out of the classroom to experience the world around you, giving you tools to take to your own communities. Course are designed to invite you to engage in questions from theological, economic and environmental perspectives. Field trips, activities and hands-on experiences make learning, experiencing and engaging difficult issues that arise in an interconnected world exciting and meaningful.
