MCC believes God calls us to a life of peace and non-violence.
We actively promote the pursuit of peace as we:
- Teach conflict transformation skills and peacebuilding strategies
- Encourage people to courageously choose peace over violence
- Address systemic injustices that can lead to violence
- Facilitate relationship-building across cultural, religious, racial and ethnic divides
- Build resilience and respond to psychological needs through trauma healing
- Provide churches with educational and advocacy resources about peace
