International Initiatives

LEAD at St. Luke’s courses will offer attendees increased awareness of global issues of justice, peace, and reconciliation through immersive experiences. Christian leaders are called to witness to and act for peace in the world, in their communities and their congregations.

Dialogue Tours

8-10 day intensive learning experiences in Northern Ireland/Ireland or Israel/Palestine. Participants may tour sites associated with the Judeo-Christian tradition (Biblical tours in Israel) and have lectures from and visits with persons involved in the conflicts in each setting. The program in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland will focus on the pre-and post Good Friday Peace Accord of 1998 relationships between opposing groups and look at the challenges of reconciliation in a post-conflict environment. In Israel, participants will live for several days in a kibbutz in northern Israel and be in conversation with Israeli Jews. Then they will live for several days in Bethlehem and be in conversation with Palestinians.


Social Justice in Northern Ireland (Dialogue Series)

September 5-12, 2017

Spend a week in Belfast exploring the beauty of Northern Ireland while learning about the historic peace work that produced the Good Friday Accord in 1998. After decades of sectarian violence that divided Catholics and Protestants, peace advocates in Northern Ireland are working to bridge the cultural and social separation that still exists. Meet former combatants and key leaders collaborating for reconciliation.
