Global Baptist Peace Conference

The fourth Global Baptist Peace Conference is planned for February 9-14, 2009, in Rome, Italy. This international event will inaugurate the 400th anniversary year of the Baptist heritage being recognized in various locations around the world.

Like previous conferences in Sweden (1988), Nicaragua (1992), and Australia (2000), this gathering will bring together Baptists who are active in nonviolent struggles for justice and for strengthening the witness of Baptist peacemaking in various global contexts.

The conference will consist of six days including intensive training in conflict transformation, nonviolent prophetic action, and other relevant topics, inspiring speakers, workshops, and worship. There also will be optional opportunities to tour Rome and the surrounding area on Friday culminating in a magnificent time of worship in the Waldensian church.

For the latest information on the Global Baptist Peace Conference, including downloadable brochures, programs, posters and registration forms, visit the event website at:

The Global Baptist Peace Conference is sponsored by American Baptist International Ministries, the Alliance of Baptists, the Baptist Peace Fellowship of North America, Unione Cristiana Evangelica Battista d'Italia, and the Evangelical Baptist Church of Georgia.
