|dc.description.abstract||This project’s purpose was to institute a disciple making plan that educated and encouraged potential leaders. Chapter 1 identifies four goals to achieve this purpose by accessing the church’s understanding of spiritual leadership, preaching eight expository messages on the spiritual disciplines, enlisting a group of potential leaders in a ten-week spiritual formation plan, and establishing a sustainable discipleship strategy.
Chapter 2 demonstrates how the Bible teaches that all Christians are called to pursue godliness. Bible passages are examined that demonstrate how all believers are called to godliness, the sufficiency of Scripture, the necessity of prayer, God calls a variety people to be leaders, and God calls Christians to serve others.
Chapter 3 examines the theoretical and practical issues related to leading people to practice spiritual disciplines. This chapter shows how God uses the disciplines to form people into leaders.
Chapter 4 lists the eight expository sermons along with a brief description of the content covered in each sermon. This chapter also includes the ten-week training sessions aimed at training new leaders through the exercise of spiritual disciplines.
Chapter 5 evaluates the project based on the level of achievement of the goals outlined in chapter 1.||en_US
