This project will work to help Greater Purpose International formulate a plan that will better serve its congregants and aid them in gaining the confidence to share their faith with others. Although the overall health of the church may have been attributed to a lack of discipleship, it is evident that congregants can be comfortable sharing their faith even if expected results are not obtained. The fundamental purpose of this study is to focus specifically on the congregants of Greater Purpose International and their ability to share their faith with others. Using qualitative research, a collection of interviews, and group sessions, the results of this study suggest that the congregants are expressive of their faith. Some underlying factors may have attributed to the recent decline, but measures have been included in this research, and the necessary recommendations have been made to reverse the problem.
