Doctor of Ministry (DMin)
The purpose of this study was to analyze my ministry in four churches in order to discover its strengths and weaknesses. It was believed that an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses evident through my ministry would enable corrective and supplemental measures to be taken.
The reason this study was undertaken was because of the fact that. in some church settings certain ministry methods worked. Then again, in other church settings, the same or similar methods did not seem to work. The questions: "Why did it work there?", and •why did it not work somewhere else?", were the motivating factors that began this searching study of my ministry. It was our concern to understand and be better equipped to serve the Lord more effectively in the work of the church.
