Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A Study of the Master's Touch Sick and Shut-In Ministry at the Mount Moriah AME Church
by Marriott, Hugh B., D.Min., Nyack College, Alliance Theological Seminary, 2017, 100; 10277198
Abstract (Summary)

From 2011–2015, The Master’s Touch ministry has been the formal agency for the work of visiting the sick and shut-in at the Mount Moriah A.M.E. Church in New York. The purpose of this study is to determine any correlation between the visitations themselves and the level of local church commitment by the visited family members over these four years. This study is important because persons visited receive the benefits of pastoral care, while the impact on their families may not be as apparent. This research will focus on data from interviews conducted with family members in order to ascertain if there is any change to their level of local church commitment.
