Chapter 1 is an introduction to the project, containing information about the
current state of the church and providing the rationale for the project. Included are the
ministry context and demographic information of the Catoosa community. The goals of
the project are also provided.
Chapter 2 provides a biblical basis for the project. The basis for the project
centers on Jesus' command to make disciples in Matthew 28:19-20. Similar commands
found in the Old Testament are examined.
Chapter 3 gives the current trends in the church's structure. The thrust is to
expose current successful ministry models and apply new insights from current ministry
trends to today's culture.
Chapter 4 gives the details of the project and its implementation of the goals of
the project. The goals of the project work together for the development of a Great
Commission culture. The congregation survey measured the commitment level of the
church to the Great Commission. Through the implementation of the goals in the project,
significant change resulted and a true Great Commission culture developed.
Chapter 5 evaluates the effects of the project on the attitude of the
congregation toward the Great Commission. Included in this chapter are an assessment of
the goals' impacts on the congregation and the effectiveness of the plans to achieve each
of the goals.||en_US
