Abstract
This project measured the impact of Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations on the spiritual health of congregational leaders. The five-week program was taught to over twenty leaders using prescribed materials. Pre- and post-program questionnaires were administered to assess spiritual health. The questionnaires measured the participant's awareness of the Holy Spirit's presence, time given to spiritual development, value attributed to congregational worship, involvement in lay-supported ministry, and the value they attributed to Christian fellowship. Responses showed some improvement in each of these areas. Recommendations for further study include a longer instruction time and more focus on personal spiritual disciplines and practices.
