Summer Conference

“It never ceases to amaze me how my week there empowers, challenges, and delights me.”

—2011 Summer Conference attendee






The BPFNA Summer Conference is an annual gathering for everyone who longs for the spirituality, inspiration, skills, knowledge and community to support a life of peace rooted in justice. This year, we will explore the concept of borders and the various borders we cross as peacemakers.
