Abstract
 
Description
This project is to research the effect of spiritual formation formed through Bible
engagement on the way in which a congregation encounters Conflict. The site is Jesse Lee United Methodist Church in Easton, Connecticut. This is a small suburban New England church with over 220 years of history.By using different tools of research, I have tried to measure the impact of Bible engagement, which to discover spiritual disciplines to inform spiritual formation to encounter conflict within the congregation. For the research following tools were applied: For quantitative data gathering congregational survey by US Congregational Life Survey was used. This survey helped gathered information regarding the use of spiritual disciplines and the understanding of spiritual formation in the congregation. Much of the research required qualitative data and these informations were gathered through use of research tools such as, focus group discussion, interviews, reaction to the Bible study, daily devotional, and sermons. The key terms used in this study are: community, conflict, Bible engagement and spiritual formation. While the survey data did not show major changes in the spiritual formation of the congregation, other qualitative research revealed that change did occurred.
