The nature of PRN Training Centers
PRN works with TRAIN strategy. This implies teaching and training on peace, reconciliation, conflict prevention and resolution, social justice and other related issues. PRN does its training in so called TRAINING CENTERS.
PRN Training Centers (TC) offer teaching in informal, non-formal and formal program´s, raising knowledge on the evangelical view of peace and reconciliation and equipping Christians for peace building.
We distinguish between regional, national and local TC. A regional TC offers a comprehensive educational hub in which training curricula for the region are developed or contextualized. As a rule such a center will serve other national and local centers, providing both programs and personnel and serving as a network administrator for PRN in the region. National centers serve a nation and local – local churches.
