Dale W. Brown Peace Endowment

Dale Brown is a long-time professor and peace activist in the Church of the Brethren. He taught at Bethany Theological Seminary in Chicago and Oak Brook, Illinois from 1962 to 1994, in addition to two years from 1956-1958. In addition to teaching theology classes, Dale was well known for his peace activism. He was a co-founder of the Brethren Action Movement, challenging youth and young adults to express their peace convictions actively as well as being conscientious objectors. He founded the Peace Studies Program at Bethany Theological Seminary (1972). Dale was also active in the New Call to Peacemaking, a cooperative venture among Quakers, Mennonites and Brethren to promote conscientious objection to war and actions to make peace. Dale could often be found at demonstrations or protest rallies objecting to war and militarism. After retirement in 1994 he moved to Elizabethtown, Pennsylvania, where he continued to support peace activism, traveling at times with Elizabethtown College students and Brethren students to protest events. In 1996 the Atlantic Northeast District of the Church of the Brethren honored Dale on the 50th anniversary of his ministry.

The Dale W. Brown endowment supports projects that fit into one of the following categories:

    • Educational experiences that include experiential learning, seminars, and practicums where students can study and experience the craft of nonviolent action.
    • Participatory projects that enable students and faculty to engage in acts of conscience and nonviolent witness against violence and war in the public square.
    • Special on-campus activities such as teach-ins, films, speakers, debates and creative means of witness that show the consequences of war and which develop conviction for nonviolent engagement.
