The purpose of this project is to equip selected adults of Calvary Baptist Church of Dothan, Alabama, with essential disciple-making competencies. To accomplish this purpose, the project director first conducted research in the area of adult discipleship. From his research, he identified four competencies that he determined are essential to effective disciple-making, namely gospel competency, head competency, heart competency, and hands competency. He then created a four-session curriculum based on the identified competencies in order to equip a small group of selected adults in the are of discipleship. He implemented the curriculum in four one-hour meetings over the course of four weeks. The project director enlisted the help of experts in the fields of disciple-making and curriculum design in order to ensure the quality and success of the project. He also utilized a pre-test/post-test and evaluations to measure participants' growth in the identified disciple-making competencies.
