The DK Workshops are a foundational part of the Domestic Kindness ministry at each church. We describe what domestic abuse is and how it affects individuals, families, and society. We explain what our ministry can do to help and how you can get involved in order to make a difference in your community. After the DK ministry is set up at the church, DK will conduct annual informative workshops for ongoing education.
Domestic Kindness is creating a steady stream of small group Bible studies that focus on Godly living while shining God's light onto the darkness of abuse and malevolent control.
There are two goals we hope to accomplish through these studies:
1. Exhort kindness in the home.
2. Equip participants with information that will enable them to help those suffering with domestic abuse issues.
All types of small groups will be encouraged to go through one 6 to 8-week study per year. These studies will be appropriate for all groups, including couples, men, women, singles, youth, Sunday groups, and life groups.
The DK Action Team is the group (made up of church members) at each church that facilitates the Domestic Kindness ministries of domestic abuse Education and Referrals.
The Action Team encourages Godly living by providing Bible studies for small groups and study groups. They support group leaders who are using the DK studies. For church leaders, they offer references and leaders' training material about the epidemic and a Biblical response to it .
The Action Team is also equipped to refer domestic abuse victims to resources (support groups, counselors, shelters, books, etc.) that will be helpful for both victims and repentant abusers.
