Our History

The prayer journals and course work of Establishing God’s Peace (EGP) are the result of over thirty years of biblical study and reflection on the nature of God. Beth Warlick and Verna McCrillis both came from a strong background of inductive Bible study. As their paths met in the early-1990s, both felt the need to translate that largely academic knowledge into a practical and disciplined guide to understanding and living out God’s grace in their lives. In 1995 they began to share their insights and study methods with others. The positive life-changing results from this tentative start encouraged them to continue consolidating the lessons and enhancing the various tools built into the prayer journal. God has blessed this ministry with steady growth in many regions across the United States and abroad. In addition, God keeps challenging Beth and Verna with new life lessons from which more materials continue to be developed. The recently completed DVD series gives dramatic evidence to God’s ongoing blessing of the EGP ministry.
