Equipping Leaders for JustPeace

The Tom Porter Program on Religion and Conflict Transformation prepares religious leaders to become a resource for peace in a multi-cultural, multi-faith world.

Who we are:

The Religion and Conflict Transformation (RCT) is a seminary-based program in theologically informed conflict transformation aimed at training ministers and other religious leaders in the theology, theory, and practice of faith-based conflict transformation in the church and in the world. The program is offered to students enrolled in any degree program at Boston University School of Theology, as well as any school in the Boston Theological Interreligious Consortium (BTI), as well as students in non-degree programs seeking to advance their education and receive training. The RCT program welcomes all leaders, including, but not limited to: pastors and laypersons, prison chaplains, military chaplains, missionaries, non-governmental organization professionals, and facilitators of conflict transformation.

The RCT Program is offered through the Boston University School of Theology in collaboration and partnership with The JustPeace Center for Mediation and Conflict Transformation and The Boston Theological Interreligious Consortium.
