MetadataShow full item record
This project sought to develop leadership training for small group leader coaches of Gospel City Church in Granger, Indiana, to promote disciple making. Chapter 1 presents a history of Gospel City Church in its context, while giving the rationale for the project, and outlining the purpose and goals. Chapter 2 focuses on the biblical call to mission focus by examining Nehemiah 1:1-7:4, which outlines Nehemiah’s call to mission focus, and then surveys the book of Matthew where Jesus demonstrated his ability to maintain mission focus. Both men followed three steps to maintain mission focus: (1) recognize the opportunity, (2) establish leadership, and (3) develop core tactics. Chapter 3 investigates the extrabiblical call to mission focus by researching current philosophies of leadership and drawing out the same pattern of leadership development as observed in Nehemiah and Jesus. These authors also followed a pattern of three steps to maintain mission focus with their leadership: (1) recognize the opportunity, (2) establish leadership, and (3) develop core tactics. Chapter 4 outlines the process by which I utilized the same pattern of leadership development for the purpose of improving opportunities found within the discipleship ministry at Gospel City Church. Chapter 5 evaluates the efficacy of the project. This project sought to demonstrate the clear pattern of leadership development from Nehemiah to Jesus Christ, and all the way to current philosophies of leadership. In addition, this project sought to demonstrate the efficiencies of remaining focused on the mission while avoiding distractions. Ultimately, this project sought to call Gospel City Church to an increased awareness of discipleship while promoting disciple making to the glory of God.
