Working on Methodology

I have been working on quantitative and qualitative instruments for my dissertation proposal. I don’t want to post those questionnaires because, (1) I need to refine them first, and (2) they need to be reserved only for those who take them during the actual research.

I am currently writing the first draft of my research methodology design and will post it at the end of the week.

Research Methodology and Design

Introduction

My research will focus on adult spiritual formation in suburban ELCA churches. It will specifically explore how the discussion of the social Trinity might impact the congregation’s understanding and practice of spiritual formation, with the hope that it might move the congregation into a fuller missional imagination. The specific research question is:

How might an increased awareness and understanding of the social Trinity impact the ideation and praxis of spiritual formation in a suburban ELCA congregation. read more

Research Team Recruiting is Underway

The core research for the Deep in the Burbs project is based on Participatory Action Research Methodology. Last Thursday the final congregation signed onto the project. Now the objective is to recruit one group of 8-12 people from three different congregations, comprising a team of 24-36 people total.

The listening/exploring sessions begin on February 24, so I need to get this team assembled. If you are interested in joining the team, click the button below.
