Feel confident responding to any hot-button issue with The Jesus Method, a countercultural way of navigating social dilemmas with wisdom and love.

The Jesus Method uncovers and breaks down Jesus’ masterful approach to social dilemmas, giving you a clear, actionable process to apply to any hot-button conversation or situation.

Social Dilemma
noun:
any pressurized predicament surrounding a hot-button issue or topic 

In an increasingly polarized society, we’re faced with social dilemmas and disagreements every day, from economic systems to elections, pronouns to pop culture. These topics can derail families, friendships, workplaces, churches, and of course, the dreaded Facebook comments section.

Followers of Jesus often find themselves stuck between a rock and a hard place when it comes to navigating tough conversations with both grace and truth. 

Do we “take a stand” and share God’s truth, even if it alienates or offends the other person? Or do we remain silent out of kindness and respect, but wonder if we’re being untrue to our values? The Jesus Method offers a different way: a simple, clear model for dealing with social dilemmas the way Jesus would, giving you confidence that you can respond with wisdom and love no matter what hot-button issues come your way. By examining Jesus’ mindset and approach to tough situations – not just WHAT He said, but HOW He said it – you will discover a path that alleviates the pressure to “get it right” and helps you get unstuck and move forward with those you love.

The Jesus Method doesn’t tell you what to think or what stance to take. Instead, it gives you a process for navigating the messy middle of truth and love, honesty and self-control while engaging in Jesus’ #1 priority: relationships.

Ted Bryant

As the leader of a large church, Ted Bryant frequently found himself asked about the church’s “stance” on a variety of social issues. He often felt pressure to broadcast that stance, regardless of his level of relationship with the listener. Though he cared very much about offering solid biblical teaching, he also felt convicted that some topics were better addressed in the context of relationship.

Feeling stuck between the pressure to speak up and the desire to be welcoming and loving to all, Ted began searching for a clear path forward. He started studying Jesus and how He navigated social dilemmas.

“Was there some sort of pattern or method He used?” Ted wondered.

It turns out there was, and it was exactly what Ted needed to get unstuck and move forward in his relationships, as a pastor and as a father and friend.
The Jesus Method is the result of Ted’s own personal search, and his hope is to walk alongside others as we all navigate this messy middle together.

Ted Bryant, who has most recently served as the Executive Pastor of Adult Ministries for three years, has been selected by the church’s administrative council to step into the role of Lead Pastor of Granger Community Church. Ted and his wife, Angela, and their six kids have been attending Granger Community Church for 18 years. He has served the church, not only as a volunteer, but in several other key staff positions as the Director of Granger Kids and Pastor of Family Ministry for the past nine years.

Ted Bryant earned a Bachelor of Science in Quantitative Biophysics from Manchester University, a master’s and PhD. in Cognitive Psychology from Notre Dame University and most recently a Master of Divinity from Moody Theological Seminary. Ted’s passion for seeing the local church continue to be a place of hope and help for the local community is something he carries with him into this new role.

As Christians, we look to Jesus to learn who God is, how to live a moral life, and how to be saved. But it turns out Jesus was also a master of navigating social dilemmas.

From the religious leaders who wanted to trap him to conflicts between His disciples, Jesus had an uncanny ability to discern a situation, meet people where they were, and lovingly speak truth while making people feel safe and accepted.

At the root of it all was His heart for relationship and the slow, intentional pace He took with each individual.
