Abstract
The purpose of this project was for at least 7 of Chicagoland Communiy Church's core team of lay leaders to demonstrate significant improvement in their personal spiritual formation. Not only would this benefit the participants, but also it would raise the discipleship capacity of this small church in a challenging center-city environment. This purpose was accomplished with a modest level of success through 'scaffolding' teaching sessions, a sermon series, technological tracking of spiritiual discipliens, multiple forms of evaluation and testing, individiual meetings, and structured pastoral counseling sessions.
