Peele, Shirley Godard, "The Effectiveness of Servanthood Training" (2021). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 3053.
This thesis project researched the leaders at Divine Praise Ministries to determine the effectiveness of servanthood training. The leaders at Divine Praise Ministries were interviewed, trained, and equipped to serve a local homeless shelter in Washington, North Carolina. The leaders were informed of the biblical reason to serve based on Matt. 25:35-40. They were also informed of the physical reason to serve based on the needs of the homeless population. In addition, the need for this thesis project was fueled by the desire of the pastor to find out why the leaders at Divine Praise Ministries lack a desire to serve in ministry. It was also fueled by a desire to help those in the community that are less fortunate. The research data was collected through observation, training, and evaluation of the leaders at Divine Praise Ministries as they were trained and given an opportunity to serve in the community.
