The TRAC5 Blueprint:
TRAC5 applies a formalized Blueprint that incorporates a unique missing element in peacemaking and crisis response. We draw upon decades worth of research and real-world experience to implement a two-prong application. It begins with a "top-down" approach engaging leadership in faith-based diplomacy. A remarkable track-record has been assembled over 20-years in countries such as Iran, Libya, Pakistan, Sudan, and the Central African Republic.
Second, our "bottom-up" approach brings people together by highlighting newly discovered and game-changing religious common ground that helps initiate reconciliation and real peace in some of the most challenging places on earth.

The Blueprint Quantified:
Part 1: Mind Impact
Linguistics: Incorporating the Aramaic language of Jesus, in a comparative analysis with the kin-Semitic languages of Hebrew and Arabic. This study has revealed ground-breaking common ground with the potential to transform religious mistrust and bias into friendship among Muslims, Christians, and Jews.
Neuroplasticity affirms what Scripture depicts, that the mind is not static, but dynamic, able to transform to a new way of thinking and living, consistent with what it means to be a peacemaker. By sharing this new common ground, we found that it has proven effective and brings alive the process of being “transformed by the renewing of the mind.”
Part 2: Heart Impact
Mathematics: Through trial and error and with careful analysis, we have quantified the consistent, “inputs and outputs” of love in practical terms ("Algorithm of Love"). This works in concert with our use of Semitic languages, which in and of itself has a way of touching the hearts of people. When applied properly, the impact on the hearts and minds of the people involved consistently leads to peace.
Applied science and psychology: All of the above is wrapped in Acts 2:42 - i.e., breaking bread, praying, relationship building and study. This is a powerful process to build genuine friendships in a way that honors political, religious and business leaders in diverse cultures, opening a door for much more to be accomplished.
