Your Church’s Mission

Like most churches, your church is always looking for ways to disciple your members. At the same time, you want to reach out into your community with relevant messages and practical answers. Said another way, you want build the body within your church and in addition, engage non-Christians as well as those people that sit on the fringe of church life, drawing each of them closer to Christ and his church.

from a pastor …
“This study is exactly what I’ve been looking for. I want our church to impact our community, and this is a perfect way to do it. It gives us what we need to reach out to those around us with a message that readily applies to their lives.”
—Charlie Holt

A Common Problem

We all have conflict. Think about the people you know. They may not be in the middle of a big blow up, but they certainly have tense conversations around the breakfast table or difficulties with an overbearing boss. Or more seriously, perhaps their marriage is on the verge of falling apart. Regardless, they are looking for answers.

One Solution

Resolving Everyday Conflict is an eight-week DVD study that is especially suited as a small group Bible study and as an outreach study. It unpacks the amazing things the Bible has to say about conflict and relationships in a fun, non-threatening, and “non-churchy” way. Give the people inside and outside your church the powerful and practical answers they are looking for to forever change how conflict looks in their lives … and teach them about Jesus at the same time.

Who is it for?

  • Your core church members and leaders – This small group Bible study is Peacemaker Ministries’ primary tool for helping entire churches learn and apply the basic principles of biblical peacemaking.
  • The people who attend your church but haven’t really connected yet – This study is a great way to get them off the fringe and involved in your church by addressing a topic they care about: conflict.
  • The unchurched – They really need a personal encounter with Jesus, but of course, they don’t know that. But they do know they need some help with conflicts … and as long as it’s practical, they’ll give it a try.

Session 1 – Facing the Flames of Conflict

from a group leader …
“The first session of the study was incredible. Three people were in tears, and one person emailed me this statement: ‘Dude, you didn’t tell me it was going to be lifechanging and stuff.’ Ha! God is really
moving here.”
—Dianna Bradley
