Haitians generally identify themselves as Christians. According to World Factbook, Haiti is 80% Catholic and 16% Protestant; however, nearly all the population practices or believes in Voodoo, which is now a national religion. Idolatry permeates every segment of life while the Haitian Protestant Church remains powerless and disengaged. The purpose of this thesis project is to develop key strategies of discipleship for Haiti in view of Matthew 28:18-20. The author proposes to survey 300 Haitian pastors, seminarians, and lay leaders in order to gauge the status of discipleship and to identify hindrances to the gospel in Haiti. The survey will help formulate key approaches to develop a new generation of Great Commission Haitian Christians. The expected result is a vibrant church where disciples are consistently made to reproduce and multiply. These strategies will benefit Haitian pastors, evangelists, missionaries, and others in fulfilling the Great Commission in Haiti.
