Studies of beliefs and behaviors of Christians in America suggest there is little significant difference between Christian believers and unbelievers. One way to address this need is to develop more effective methods of doing ministry. This study addressed the need for local church discipleship programs to be more effective by incorporating adult learning strategies that include self-directed learning concepts. The purpose of this study was to examine discipleship at Abundant Life Fellowship of Roseville, California, as a qualitative grounded theory study to determine if self-directed learning concepts are integrated in the methods employed in that ministry. The findings suggest the Abundant Life Fellowship program does promote self-directedness and that discipleship programs would be more effective if self-directed learning approaches are incorporated in the curriculum.
