Conflict transformation training
Through MCC, thousands of people around the world get training in conflict transformation, including workshops and month-long advanced peacebuilding training. Participants learn how to resolve conflicts, prevent violence, provide trauma healing and address injustices. When they return home, they act for peace and train others in their communities.

Peace clubs
Children and teenagers around the world learn to recognize conflict and use nonviolent ways to resolve it through peace clubs in their schools. Through stories and role plays they learn about respect, self-esteem, people who are different from them and creative ideas for responding to conflict and injustice.

Peace education
Peace education focuses on how our faith leads us to build peace rather than join our nation’s pursuit of war and militarism and society’s reliance on violence. We provide resources and speakers to broaden people’s understanding of peace and encourage advocacy with government leaders.


East Coast

In the East Coast, peacebuilding is woven into all of our programs. Carrying out a ministry of action rooted in the New Testament and Anabaptism, we work with constituent churches and conferences on education and advocacy. Focus areas include:

  • Anabaptist identity
  • Bridging theological, cultural and ethnic divides
  • Peace and justice education
  • Mediation and counseling
  • Trauma awareness and resilience practices
  • Anti-oppression application
  • Gun violence prevention
  • Mass incarceration, restorative justice and state criminal justice reform
  • Immigration
West Coast

West Coast MCC’s Border Peacebuilding initiative contributes to the development of safer, more secure communities on both sides of the US/Mexico border by reducing violence and healing trauma. Our focus is providing capacity building opportunities to community-based organizations, churches, educational institutions and other grass-roots community groups. The capacity building activities are designed to connect these groups to resources and evidence-based practices.

WCMCC facilitates learning processes that enable local groups to become the trainers and content experts in their contexts.  Through engaging local groups in dialogue-based training, knowledge, skills and capacity to pass on what they have learned to others allow them to become resources in their communities.

In order to build peace within the Nogales, Arizona and Mexico regions, WCMCC and MCC Mexico are joining with:
