Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Soul Care for First-Generation Jorai Christians in North Carolina
by Siu, Hendy, D.Min., Nyack College, Alliance Theological Seminary, 2020, 174; 28318985
Abstract (Summary)

The author presents the confession of sins to others, the forgiveness of sins of others, and the lack of intimacy with God as a problem in ministry for first-generation Jorai Christians in America. He created an intervention, which consisted of soul care for first-generation Jorai Christians. He recruited eighteen participants. He used a Likert Scale to measure seven Soul Care Scale questions. He interviewed eighteen participants and searched for indicators of eight Soul Care Interview questions. The author discovered a higher level of confession of sins, forgiveness of sins, and intimacy with the Lord after participating in the intervention than before participating and offered ministry recommendations.
