Hong, Sungsoo, "Developing a Contextualized Retreat Manual Based on the `Tres Dias' Movement for the Spiritual Disciplines of Russian Churches" (2014). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 836.
The purpose of this thesis project is to create a practical retreat manual for the spiritual disciplines contextualized to the Russian context based on the `Tres Dias' movement. It is important to develop the spiritual training program with contextualization as an effective mission strategy. While many of the missionaries in Russia have been trying to apply the spiritual disciplines in their mission field, little contextualized practical research exists on them. Tres Dias is one of the spiritual retreat programs compatible with contextualization. This project analyzes and evaluates the value and compatibility of the Tres Dias movement in Russia based on responses to a questionnaire survey from one hundred church leaders involved in the movement in Moscow. This thesis intends to develop a pragmatic retreat manual for the spiritual discipline in current Russian contexts.
