About the Center

The Center for Reconciliation (CFR) exists to inspire, form, and support leaders, communities, and congregations to live as ambassadors of reconciliation.

Founded in 2005, the CFR has become a significant presence in cultivating seeds of reconciliation both locally and globally. The CFR focuses its efforts around three primary activities: connecting existing practitioners through collaborative partnerships, cultivating new actors in the work of reconciliation, and communicating wisdom and hope.

In July 2015, Christena Cleveland began her appointment as the new CFR director.

“If anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.”
—2 Corinthians 5:17-19
