The Global Immersion Project is a peacemaking training organization that is connecting people of faith to our divided world in restorative ways. Our immersive learning approach offers access to seemingly inaccessible global & domestic conflicts where the conflict is our classroom and where the peacemakers embedded within are our teachers. Our goal is to train and mobilize influencers and restorative communities of faith throughout the United States into the pain as instruments of peace.
Global Immersion was co-founded by Jer and Jon Huckins in 2011. Both are faith leaders and social innovators who specialize in equipping & mobilize influencers from across the spectrum of industries into the work of peacemaking. The Global Immersion team also includes international and domestic peacemakers & experts who are embedded in areas of conflict around the world.
Our training takes place in three primary ways: Online Resources, Immersive Learning, and Coaching/Consulting.
Online Resources: Our free monthly webinars, relevant, invitational writing, eCourses, and seasonal took kits offer practical strategies for everyday peacemaking with our selves, within our homes, around our neighborhoods, in our faith communities, and throughout our cities, states, country and world.
Immersive Learning: Through workshops, retreats, and national and international Immersion Trips, we teach you how to become students of self, place, conflict, and the “other” so that you can enter the points of pain in your own neighborhood creatively, compassionately, collaboratively, and restoratively.
Our current Immersion Trips invite you into two very different locations and conflicts:
- Israel & Palestine offers a focus on institutional racism, religious extremism, and faith-based peacemaking.
- San Diego & Tijuana immerses us into the complexities of immigration and invites us beyond the political and theolgoical talking points and into and human realities of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers.
We offer multiple Immersion Trips each year. Click Here to learn more.
Coaching & Consulting: We design 1-to-3 year coaching strategies with faith, academic, nonprofit, and civic leaders to help them and their teams become everyday peacemaking practitioners and trainers that shape the culture and practices of their churches, organizations, and cities. Each strategy includes interactive curriculum, immersive learning opportunities, and personalized coaching. To learn more, please contact our Administrative Coordinator.
