|This ministry project was designed to measure the usefulness of Lifeway’s Discipleship Pathway Assessment in local churches. The chapters show why there is a need for an assessment tool that measures spiritual growth while also compiling the research gathered to measure the usefulness of the DPA. Chapter 1 explains the context, rationale, purpose, goals, and methodology of the project. Chapter 2 focuses on the biblical calling of a church to grow their people spiritually by examining Hebrews 5:11-6:3, 1 Peter 2:1-3, 2 Corinthians 3:18, and Ephesians 4:11-16. Chapter 3 provides a brief history of how the DPA came to be along with theoretical support from other resources affirming the 8 Biblical Signposts as useful. Chapter 4 details the planning, preparation, and implementation of the ministry project while also analyzing the results of the project. Chapter 5 presents an assessment of the purpose, goals, strengths, and weaknesses of the project, and concludes with suggested changes, and theological and personal reflections.
