Do you feel like your life is more challenging that you ever imagined? Do you feel like conflicts or disagreements occur more frequently than you like? Do you wish you knew more about how to live in peace even when you are not in control of all the circumstances and choices that impact your life? ICC’s Peacemaking Introduction is designed to offer you some amazing revelations that will help you understand how conflict and chaos are actually part of God’s plan to help us grow and learn. Most of us want to fight or run the other way--but neither is particularly healthy. During this Peacemaking Introduction, we will reveal the secret the world seems to misunderstand--conflict is actually an opportunity to glorify God, strengthen relationships, and grow in self-awareness. 


Peacemaking Introduction has two parts. Both parts can  be completed in time so that you can also enroll in Peacemaking 1, should that be your desire. Part 1 takes about 3 hours and Part 2 is about 4 hours.  

Part 1: Identifies what a culture of peace is.

Part 2: Explores our own role in establishing a culture of peace and defines "I am the 85."

Eligibility: Students ages 14 and adults.

Offered: Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter. 

NOTICE OF MATURE CONTENTAs we have explored what it takes to Create a Culture of Peace within ICC, we have discovered that one of the keys is to learn to recognize and respect differing perspectives, even when we disagree. We cannot show love to others by rejecting them completely, simply because they think differently than we do.  When we push people away, we lose an opportunity to speak Truth.  

I have prepared a reading/video list, which is based on my own reading as I explore our world looking for opportunities to understand myself and others so that I can model Christ and Glorify God. While we have limited the topics covered in Peacemaking Intro to those generally acceptable for 14 and 15 year olds, the sites containing the videos change daily and sometimes contain COMMENTS that are not appropriate.  

Because we are aware this might happen, we only require videos intended for ALL AUDIENCES for our 14-15 year olds. Please note, even among the OVER 16 Selections, the videos themselves are NOT generally a problem. We try to provide warnings if there is a curse word or unduly coarse language, but even that is rare.  It is the comments that may be inappropriate.  We can avoid the problem simply by ignoring the comments which are always below the video.

While there is great value in going through the process of looking at the way the world views things, it is not our intent to force anyone to watch anything that students,  parents or God feels is inappropriate in light of our overall objective to learn to create a Culture of Peace..

While we encourage stretching beyond what makes you comfortable and feel good -- it is ultimately your decision.


Contact if you have questions.

There are special opportunities for Chapter groups in one geographic area that would like to take the Peacemaking Introduction together with a guide to lead group discussions. Contact us at if you think you might have a group facilitator and 4 interested students who are interested in meeting together.


All are invited to register, although it is recommended for chapter student leaders and students 15 and up. 


Those who enrolled in PREP 2016/2017 are not required to take this course.
