Conflict Transformation Training Videos
Goal: $4,000 per year
About this Mission Project
Conflicts within congregations, denominations, communities and nations can create great suffering and damage the witness of the body of Christ.
IM missionary Dan Buttry has trained many church and community leaders around the world in Bible-based conflict transformation. To supplement his direct training, Dan is also developing a series of 16 short video lessons. These videos serve as a refresher for course graduates and provide substantive training materials for many interested peacemakers.
- $50 provides editing for one video.
- $100 provides the graphics and animation for one video.
- $250 hires production crew and rents equipment for one video.
- $500 provides production for one video.
Mission Project Specifics
This project seeks to raise $4,000 each year in 2016 and 2017 to produce a series of high-quality conflict transformation training videos. Each year, eight three-to-10-minute videos will be produced.
This project will be managed by Dan Buttry and Christin Russman-McKamey, a member of Dan’s Mission Partnership Team and of Genesis the Church in Royal Oak, Michigan.
It is anticipated that this project will create web-accessible training videos that will have a lasting global impact by bringing Dan’s training to people unable to attend his sessions in person and remaining available long past Dan’s missionary career.
