As a multicultural country, the opportunities for clashes and conflicts in Indonesia are widely open. The plurality and heterogeneity of Indonesian society is reflected in multiple cultures, religions, and lifestyle diversity. In the national history of Indonesia, various inter-religion conflicts occurred in Poso in 1998 and Ambon in 1999 and others. There are uncountable casualties and material losses in the conflicts. Many conflicts with the religious flags have led Synod of Churches in North and Central Sulawesi to spearhead the Peace Love Movement as an interfaith movement. The Synod Am/SAG houses 13 other churches. The movement pioneer by the Synod Am/SAG later became a pioneer in building public awareness that despite our society is diverse, we are one nation. Therefore, it was initiated the School of Pluralism in 2014, the school that educates the interfaith youth through class encounter classes. It was held one week. This pluralism school is held annually. Based on the above background, the researchers are interested in examining the role of Pluralism School alumni in maintaining religious harmony in North Sulawesi.
