I’m a dreamer…I always have been. My dreams tend to orient around innovative methods that lead to the holistic development of people and, ultimately, to global human flourishing.
Today, after a year of development, listening, refinement, on the ground experience, and opened doors into unthinkable partnerships, one of those dreams is becoming a reality!
In partnership with my friend and co-founder, Jon Huckins, it is my deepest joy to introduce The Global Immersion Project.
Oriented around the life and teachings of Jesus (Matthew 5:9; Luke 19:41-42), our work is to cultivate everyday peacemakers through immersion in global conflict. To do so, we curate 3-month Learning Labs that culminate in world-class, 2-week immersion experiences into the seemingly inaccessible global areas of conflict and into the lives of the everyday peacemakers embedded within.
In short, our dream is to see an entire global generation equipped with the micro-practices of peacemaking and collaborating across boarders toward a just, flourishing tomorrow. To that end, not only will we be a presence of reconciliation globally, but we will also resource leaders, global citizens, and emerging influencers to live, love, and lead as everyday peacemakers in the Way of Jesus from within the context of their own neighborhoods.
As we officially “go live,” we would appreciate your support by both joining our social media outlets AND by helping us share our work through your personal networks. Here’s how:

As Jesus demonstrated, the work of peacemaking is neither esoteric nor glamorous; it’s grounded, subversive, gritty, and everyday. We must no longer outsource the work of peacemaking but must, instead, reintegrate it into our vocation as human beings created in the image of God. In the Way of Jesus, we must become instruments of peace.
To that end,
Co-Founder & CVO of The Global Immersion Project
