Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

An Evaluation of the "Explore" Event at Staunton Alliance Church in Rural Virginia as a means to Improve Pre-Evangelism Readiness Among Participating Congregants
by Adams, Paige A., D.Min., Nyack College, Alliance Theological Seminary, 2020, 139; 27835866
Abstract (Summary)

The author presents evangelistic lethargy as a ministry problem for the congregants of Staunton Alliance Church. He has created an intervention, which consisted of introducing a training course in pre-evangelism coupled with a field practice. He recruited twelve participants for this study. He used a quantitative test entitled “Pre-Evangelism Readiness Survey” that measured each participant’s pre-evangelism readiness on a five-point Likert scale. He interviewed twelve participants and searched for indicators for the presence of pre-evangelism readiness traits. The author discovered that after the intervention participants did exhibit improvement in pre-evangelism readiness and has offered resulting ministry recommendations.
