Hearing God- peer coaching and the role of high quality connections in spiritual development
by Bird, Patricia E., D.Min., United Theological Seminary, 2015, 195; 10055451
Abstract (Summary)

The context for this qualitative case study evaluation was a 400 member United Methodist Church in southwest Michigan. Incongruence existed between the congregants' claimed spiritual development and minimal supernatural manifestations. Significant instruction has not resulted in change. The purpose of this project was to develop, implement, and evaluate a leadership training. The hypothesis was that peer coaching is an effective method to accelerate spiritual intimacy as measured by hearing God. Data analysis revealed three themes related to hearing God: hindrances, helps, and hearing. Hindrances must be addressed through helps in order to hear.
