Styron, Henry D., "Developing a Measuring Instrument to Determine the Level of Discipleship Commitment Attained by Individual Christians" (2004). Doctoral Dissertations and Projects. 385.
The writer’s personal experience, consultations with clergy and laity, and a review of current literature reveal a lack of genuine discipleship in the modern church. The purpose of the project is to develop a usable Biblical model of a disciple, and to develop a measuring instrument by which conformity to this model may be determined in the lives of individual Christians. The project details the creation of the model and the instrument, and then documents the field testing of the instrument in various churches and other venues, with resulting evaluation and improvement to the instrument.
