The project seeks to equip parents of Bethel Bible Church to use family mealtimes in the spiritual formation of their children.

Chapter 1 gives the purpose, goals, establishes the context and rationale for equipping parents to use family meals to disciple their children.

Chapter 2 explores the biblical precedent for both parents being the primary disciplers of their children and the power of meals in the spiritual formation of people.

Chapter 3 focuses on the theoretical, philosophical, and practical issues for parents in using family mealtimes in the spiritual formation of their children.

Chapter 4 explains the implementation of the project. The process began by assessing the current practices and perceptions of family discipleship. An eight-week family mealtime devotional curriculum, called “I Spy,” was developed and evaluated. Three identical parent training sessions were conducted and the pre-project survey was collected. Upon conclusion of the eight weeks a post-survey was collected for analysis.

Chapter 5 offers an evaluation of the effectiveness, discusses strengths and weaknesses, and concludes with theological and personal reflections.
