Christian Peacemaker Teams Delegation opportunities:
 A different way to spend a vacation!

 Delegations are a primary way to become involved in the work of Christian Peacemaker Teams (CPT).

CPT sends short-term (7-14 day - holiday length) peacemaker delegations into crisis settings around the world. These delegations link communities experiencing violence with concerned individuals, churches and groups. Delegations offer participants a first-hand experience of CPT's on-the-ground experiment in faith-based non-violence.

Delegations are open to all interested people and do not require specific nonviolence training -- just fill out a Delegations Application at: https://cpt.org/participate/delegation
Delegations currently go to:


See schedule at https://cpt.org/participate/delegation/schedule  and speak to Murray L., CPT Reservist
