Free Stuff Fridays

Free Stuff Fridays
We’ve got a new sponsor for this week’s edition of Free Stuff Fridays. But it is a name that is probably familiar to you. Peacemaker Ministries will be giving away five complete sets of their new video group study, Resolving Everyday Conflict (regular price $249). Each set contains the materials needed for a group of 10 to go through the study together (including DVD set, study guides, peacemaking reference book, promotional materials, and more). 

Resolving ConflictResolving Everyday Conflict is an eight-lesson study that unpacks the amazing things the Bible has to say about conflict and relationships. As you go through this study, you’ll find the powerful and practical answers you are looking for to forever change how conflict looks in your life.

The primary places this study will be used are:

  • The Church - Give your church members a tool for outreach to the community: This study will help your church reach people that you might otherwise have trouble reaching—the people on the fringe of your church life as well as the unchurched in your community. By offering this study, you can give them practical help with an issue that is relevant—conflict—and teach them about Jesus at the same time.
  • The Workplace - Help employees deal with conflict at work (and everywhere else): Studying Resolving Everyday Conflict in the workplace has two key benefits: 1) It will help your team members by giving them practical tools to handle conflict at work and outside work; and 2) It is good for your organization—as your team learns to resolve conflict quickly and constructively (or avoid it altogether!), you’ll have a healthier and more productive work environment.

By the way… Resolving Everyday Conflict works in lots of other places, too. We’ve already heard of it being used as a neighborhood bible study, in prison ministry, in college dorms, and more. It’s flexible enough to work in just about any context where a group wants to learn to deal with conflict differently—in a way that reflects the reality of the gospel in all our relationships.
