The Glocal Residency is an advanced internship, facilitated by both Peace Catalyst and Redemption Church, that seeks to provide people with an opportunity to learn from and serve internationals in the Phoenix-Metro area.
The residency will be centered on the Faith & Culture Community, a reconciling community that is committed to the internationals in our city. The residents will help facilitate the Faith & Culture Community and will be liaisons between internationals and their church. The residency will include significant time with refugees and will involve training in cross-cultural communication and multi-dimensional peacemaking. Study of Biblical Theology and weekly journal reflections will enrich the learning process.
The Glocal Residency is committed to learning how to follow Jesus in this globally interconnected world. We are a community of learners, desiring to love God and our global neighbors as we respond to the realities of globalization and urbanization. God is bringing the nations to our city. The Faith & Culture Community and the Glocal Residency together seek to help participants pursue both knowing God and understanding the world we live in.
