About the Pilgrim Center
In 1994, the Rwandan genocide stole lives if almost 1 million people. Nearly 20% of the population was killed in just 100 days. The rest were left being angry and hurting. In the wake of this war, the pilgrim center's founders, Dr. Arthur and Molly Rouner were invited to Rwanda by World Vision. Was there anything that could be done, not to change conflict continues. Communities need to be rebuilt but how can that happen unless lives are?
This is where the work of the Pilgrim Center begins. Into the dark cycles of historic and contemporary pain and conflict, for individuals and groups of people in Africa, America and beyond.
The Pilgrim Center brings hope and healing by renewing individuals, restoring relationship, and revitalizing communities through the ministry of reconciliation.
Our calling is to bring hope and healing by revitalizing individuals, restoring relationships, and renewing communities through the ministry of reconciliation.
We Embrace our dependence on God and rest in His healing power. We welcome all people and affirm the dignity of every human being as created in the image of God. We seek to create safe spaces, where strangers and enemies can be friends!
