Walters, Joshua, "A Proposal for Construction and Implementation of a Focused Approach to a New Member Discipleship Program" (2011). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 413.
The purpose of this project is to reveal the benefits of new member discipleship, for without this process there are many who do not follow through with their commitment to be an active part of that body of believers. This project shall: examine the purpose and history of discipleship, analyze surveyed responses from local pastors and new members, explore the results of new member discipleship in local churches, and conclude with a discipleship plan ready for implementation. This project seeks to show that through new member discipleship, the church can increase the understanding and dedication of their new members.
