The Global Baptist Peace Conference (GBPC) is a continuation of a series of influential global peace conferences that began in 1988 in Sweden. Past gatherings have sparked an immense amount of effective grassroots work, and many individual peacemakers have been inspired and equipped to continue their own creative and courageous work. This conference will build on the important work of Baptists engaged in peacemaking processes around the globe and will equip those engaged in ecumenical and interfaith peacebuilding around the world.
The 2019 gathering will take place in Cali, Colombia, principally to recognize, honor, and learn from the extraordinary accomplishment of the Colombian Peace Accord. Conference attendees will be able to learn from the successes and setbacks of this peace process, particularly for application in similar low-intensity conflict zones, and will have the opportunity to meet some of the main actors in the peace process.
If you are passionate about nonviolence, social justice and strengthening the global witness for peace, this invitation is for you. Baptist Christian peacemakers are hosting – and the door is open to all. Focused on the theme Peace in Our Land: Toward a World Without Violence, plenary sessions, workshops, and trainings will provide the resources to ignite more of the regional and grassroots movements for peace that earlier Global Baptist Peace Conferences have inspired. And since this gathering will combine with the annual summer conference of the BPFNA ~ Bautistas por la Paz, if you are a regular or not-so-regular attender, start planning now to come and experience Summer Conference within a global community of peacemakers!
