The world needs compassionate, skilled leaders more than ever before! From terror-torn Nigeria, Sri Lanka, and Mexican border towns to American cities like Chicago and San Francisco, we are building teams of trained, engaged, and passionate leaders who understand faith, human dignity, equality, and opportunity are vital to achieving basic human rights.

50+  INTERFAITH PEACEMAKER TEAMS IN NIGERIA

In Northeastern Nigeria, where Boko Haram is active, OMNIA's training helps clergy and lay religious leaders to work together to stop the growth of extremism and create economic opportunity. As a result, we have created more than 50 Interfaith Peacemaker Teams - Muslims and Christians who are working together in effective and powerful actions towards peace. 


PEACE IS GAINING GROUND IN SRI LANKA

OMNIA is proud of its work building Interfaith Peacemaker Teams in some of the world's toughest regions. Here's how Peace is Gaining Ground through OMNIA’s Leadership training.


OMNIA STANDS WITH THOSE IN THE MARGINS

OMNIA’s method is to listen to, learn from, and stand in solidarity with those in the margins. It dismantles old, dilapidated top-down theologies, ideologies and cultural narratives that collude with oppressive power structures, and builds up fresh, relevant, experimental, and liberative ground-up ways of thinking and being.


75+ OMNIA-TRAINED LEADERS IN THE U.S.

After 40 years of training hundreds of Christians for tough urban ministry, today OMNIA trains people of all faiths to build deep relationships and work together. It’s nothing like the interfaith dialogue you know. Our method is bold, deeply relational and focuses on building power, and powerful coalitions for strategic action for justice.
