Abstract

The proposed thesis project on discipleship presents an effective discipleship making plan in fulfillment of the Great Commission through a parachurch ministry. The researcher believes that many churches have replaced disciple-making efforts with programs and platitudes. The purpose of this project is to establish a strategy that cultivates healthy disciples who recognize their Christian responsibility to make disciples through micro group ministries. It consists of three stages. Stage one consists of the research design component, stage two includes the intervention design component, and stage three involves the intervention delivery process. The goals of this project include teaching believers the biblical mandate regarding discipleship, equipping project participants with the tools to lead a micro group, and establishing multiplying micro groups upon the completion of the curriculum. The research methods used in this project include survey research, questionnaires, and focus groups. This thesis project will influence others in this field by providing a duplicatable tool for discipleship.
