The purpose of this project was to develop and implement an effective process to equip parents as the primary disciple-makers of their children in the home through the strategy of Faith Milestones at Cornerstone Evangelical Presbyterian Church in Brighton, Michigan. Chapter 1 provides a summary of the goals and rationale for the project in its ministry context and the research methodology used to measure the project's goals.
Chapter 2 provides theological and biblical support for the project by examining four texts of scripture: Deuteronomy 6:1-9, Psalm 78:1-8, Ephesians 6:1-4, and Ephesians 4:10-16.
Chapter 3 furnishes theoretical and sociological support for the project. The milestone strategy is advanced as a method to engage in the family-equipping model to respond to parental disengagement as observed through sociological studies.
Chapter 4 summarizes the details of the project. It describes the project as a whole, the planning and promotion of the project, and the implementation of the project.
Chapter 5 provides an evaluation of the project. The attainment of the project's goals is measured according the research methodology proposed in chapter 1. The strengths and weaknesses of the project are considered, followed by theological and personal reflection.||en_US
