Project Name: Preaching Peace
Description:

Street Psalms convenes and coordinates a global network of training hubs who are committed to developing incarnational leaders to love their city and seek its peace. Our Thriving in Ministry initiative is called “Preaching Peace.” It is focused on urban pastors who are called to preach and practice peace in vulnerable urban communities. The model began in Tacoma, WA where, for more than five years, local pastors gather weekly over a sack lunch for 1.5 hours. Together they reflect on the Gospel lectionary text they will preach the coming Sunday. In addition, pastors convene an annual retreat for mutual support. They also host a lecture series for the broader community. This simple model has cultivated deep community that sustains pastors and their congregations. It has also created the space for a wide variety of collateral programs to develop organically – ones that under resourced urban churches cannot achieve on their own. Street Psalms is sharing this model in at least 10 new sites throughout its network.
