Abstract:
The dilemma between the sermon of love and peace proclaimed in Rwanda by Churches and their failure to contribute to the prevention of the 1994 genocide against the Tutsis in Rwanda brought the researcher to wonder whether the speech and actions of EPR as one of Protestant Churches in Rwanda, could have any impact on the human behaviour. Through that dilemma between the negative impact of the Church mission in the pregenocide Rwanda and its will to pursue the mission in the post-genocide era by contributing to the process of post-conflict peacebuilding, the research problem can be formulated as follows: Is there any effect of peacebuilding initiatives of the Presbyterian Church in the post-Genocide Rwandan society?
