Transforming Trauma: The Role of the Church in Zimbabwe

Dr. Ray Motsi will explore the role of the church in transforming community trauma. He will focus on the Matabeleland region of Zimbabwe, which in the early 1980s experienced significant violence at the hands of specially-trained government security forces. Dr. Motsi is currently President of the Theological College of Zimbabwe, and he earned his Ph.D. from the University of Pretoria in South Africa in Peacebuilding, Conflict Resolution, and Trauma Healing. He has served as a Baptist pastor in Zimbabwe for over 20 years, and in 2002 he founded Grace to Heal, a faith-based organization focusing on community peacemaking and conflict transformation. Anne Marie Stoner-Eby, Coordinator of the PACS Program, will facilitate the Q&A session following Dr. Motsi's presentation.
