The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2019 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. John David Trentham This project focuses on promoting a culture of spiritual growth through equipping student leaders for discipleship on the campus of a Christian college. The project is implemented through six training modules designed to equip student leaders for the work of discipleship. Chapter 1 introduces the project, explaining the purpose, goals, background, and rationale for promoting a culture of spiritual growth. Chapter 2 develops a biblical theology for promoting a culture of spiritual growth through discipleship. Specifically, this chapter focuses on three passages of Scripture which provide explanation for why a Christian college should be focused on equipping students for discipleship. Chapter 3 examines various resources in both the field of Christian higher education and institutional management which provide explanation for why a Christian college exists and how spiritual purpose can be maintained through promoting a culture of spiritual growth. Chapter 4 outlines the implementation of the six-week discipleship training modules presented to the student leaders at Trinity Baptist College. Chapter 5 offers analysis and reflection upon the entire project.
