Missional Competencies of Christian Teachers Engaged in Public Education: A Quantitative Study
MetadataShow full item record
The intent of this descriptive quantitative study was to examine the missional competencies that Christian teachers in public education exhibit as they seek to leverage their Christian witness in the workplace. The research questions this study sought to answer were as follows: (1) What Christian activities do Christians in public education engage to leverage their Christian witness? (2) What missional competencies do Christians in public education possess? The data for this quantitative study was gathered through online surveys that were accessed through social media targeted ads. For data analysis, the mean was first calculated to understand the frequency of behaviors that were indicative of the competencies being measured. Following this analysis, data was analyzed using a chi-squared test to determine if there was any statistically significant relationship between the demographic data and the missional behaviors identified. Finally, when a statistically significant relationship was identified, a linear regression test was performed to determine the strength of the correlation within the demographics and missional behaviors.
