CPT is made up of people from a variety of backgrounds, who have all dedicated themselves to CPT's mission of building partnerships to transform violence and oppression. The types of service that contribute to CPT's work include:

Peacemaker Corps: full-time and part-time workers

These people staff our field-based violence reduction projects. They commit to full-time or part-time work for three years.

Administrative Team

CPT's "staff," this group is generally based in our offices. They also serve on our violence reduction teams in the field.

Steering Committee

Representatives from:

  • CPT's officially sponsoring groups and denominations
  • CPT's Peacemaker Corps
  • Supporters who bring a balance of skills and voice from their communities

This body functions as the board of directors and has general oversight of CPT's programs and operations.


CPT is upheld by a wide-reaching network of support: churches, organizations, individuals, meetings, fellowships, foundations, and more. CPT could not exist without their prayers and contributions. Thank you!
