The Public Peace Initiative is a movement of peacemakers building bridges of unity, reconciliation, and hope for our world

Pursuing “Peace” in our communities means seeking a world where we “Flourish”.
As people of God, we are being beckoned into our divine identity as sons and daughters, to walk out our purpose as peacemakers with Jesus, the Prince of Peace, to stand in the gap of disparity – To reclaim what has been stolen, reconcile what has been divided, and restore what has been broken with the wholeness and fullness of the Kingdom of God.
From our churches to our government to our communities, businesses, and acts of philanthropy – we are purposed to move toward peace!

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”

– Matthew 5:9 –

Jerry would then choose to go back to the streets to advocate for his neighbors who are trying to survive the harsh elements and reality of not having a home.…READ MORE
