Pastors and lay leaders are being trained in the Anabaptist (peace) perspective to breach the gap within the local community in the reintroduction of peace theology. As a result of the violence that has ravaged the community, a lot of people are not are aware of being afflicted with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. They are constantly tempted to fight back. Sharing the good news of peacemaking can be refreshing and redemptive.

Key training documents are being translated into Hausa (e.g., Mission Dei booklets) so that these leaders can then train their own people.

As we serve God by serving people, new churches will emerge as a result. Our goal is to have leaders plant churches in all of the major cities of the Middle Belt.

We have recently added an experienced church planter to start a church at the Peace Center headquarters to lead the church planters throughout the Middle Belt. We are trusting God that the same pastor will lead the retired pastors program. We are excited that he brings with him a wealth of experience and enthusiasm

“We who were formerly no people at all, and who knew of no peace, are now called to be…a church…of peace. True Christians do not know vengeance. They are the children of peace. Their hearts overflow with peace. Their mouths speak peace, and they walk in the way of peace.”

– Menno Simons
