Responding to the scriptural teaching of living in peace with everyone (Romans 12:18) and welcoming the stranger (Deuteronomy 14:29), IM missionaries are invited by Christian partner organizations to conflict areas around the world. Using the Bible and employing experiential learning techniques, they teach hands-on approaches in conflict resolution and transformation. IM also stands with those who are seeking refuge from struggles, violence, or persecution. Church workers are trained by IM missionaries to help these refugees find a new home and experience a new beginning in the name of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
IM invests a quarter of a million dollars annually to seek peace and offer refuge, sending four long-term missionaries and 165 volunteers and short-term missionaries in 2011-2012 to work with Christian partners in conflict transformation and service to refugees. These figures remain essentially the same for 2013.
