MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this project is to develop a framework for discipleship at Open Door Christian Schools (ODCS) that connects citizenship in the kingdom of heaven to discipleship efforts. Chapter 1 presents the history and ministry context of ODCS and the goals of this project. Chapter 2 provides a biblical basis for connecting discipleship to the kingdom of heaven by defining “disciples” as those who recognize their citizenship in the kingdom of heaven, exploring how citizenship in the kingdom is given, and the responsibility of being citizens who pursue, promote, and persist in living for the King and advancing His kingdom. Chapter 3 explores how Christ uses instructional practices in His discipleship that contemporary research validate. Chapter 4 describes the project implementation by providing a detailed account of the three goals and their results. Chapter 5 evaluates the efficacy of the project based on completion of the specified goals. This project seeks to develop a discipleship framework that connects discipleship to being an active citizen in Christ’s kingdom.
