MetadataShow full item record
This project seeks to foster the practice of interpersonal discipleship at GraceChurch of Tallahassee (GCOT) by equipping a select group of members to begin discipling other members. Chapter 1 provides a brief overview of the ministry context at GCOT. It also describes the project’s goals, rationale, research methodology, and delimitations and limits. Chapter 2 provides the biblical and theological basis for the project. Exegesis of Matthew 28:18-20, Ephesians 4:11-16, and Titus 2:1-8 supports the idea that the New Testament models the responsibility of mature Christians to disciple less mature Christians. Chapter 3 addresses some of the cultural, structural, and training barriers to interpersonal discipleship in the American context. Chapter 4 describes the implementation of the project in detail. Chapter 5 evaluates the effectiveness of the project and discusses the strengths and weakness of it as well as ideas for future exploration.
