Tiaden, Kevin N. “An Examination of the Teachings of Missional Concepts of Christian Discipleship and their Potential for Creating Attitudinal Change at Berea Lutheran Church, Richfield, Minnesota.” Doctor of Ministry. Major Applied Project, Concordia Seminary, 2017. 132 pp.

The purpose of this study is to examine the teaching of missional principles of discipleship at Berea Lutheran Church. I examine the attitudinal changes that take place as a result of this class. The first step in this process is looking at what those missional and Biblical principles are and then creating a method of teaching them in a large group setting while maintaining firm standing in the teaching of my church body, the LCMS. Many of the concepts for these teachings come from 3DM Ministries in their work in creating disciples and from The final evaluation is to examine the changes in attitude towards discipleship within the congregation where I serve. This will set a base for further growth in our lives following Jesus here at Berea and in the church at large.
