A proud partner of St. Barnabas, Kids4Peace develops courageous leaders who work to create more just and inclusive societies.
Kids4Peace in Cincinnati was established in 2016 when members of Christ Church Cathedral joined forces with representatives from the area’s Jewish and Islam communities to bring a Kids4Peace camp to our region. Kids4Peace brings together Jewish, Christian and Muslim middle school students to learn more about other religions, equality and social justice.
St. Barnabas member Jack Fechter has been participating in Kids4Peace for several years and has this to say:
"I have been a part of Kids4Peace since 6th grade and it has been a very important part of my life. Through Kids4Peace, I have learned about the importance of talking with people who may be perceived as different. Being able to do this allows you to understand their beliefs and them as a person." - Jack Fechter
If you (or your child) is interested in getting involved in Kids4Peace, check out these upcoming events. Contact our Youth Ministries Director, David Lantz, if you would like to learn more or volunteer with St. Barnabas' support of Kids4Peace.
