ABSTRACT 2: The entire project will function as a gentle antithesis to homeostasis

ABSTRACT: Diagnosis, Dialogue, and Decision: A Threefold Process of Revitalization For the Illinois Great Rivers Conference by David O. Kueker – Doctor of Ministry, School of Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary, 2007.

            The first seminar, Diagnosis, will help churches understand their situations compared to the principles which guide the largest and fastest growing churches in the world, and particularly the discipleship system of the Yoido Full Gospel Church of Seoul, Korea. Grace, whether prevenient, justifying, or sanctifying, is a process of change; therefore, grace and the gospel are always extraordinary, entering systems as foreign influences contrary to the status quo. The second seminar, Dialogue, will blend insights from Peter Senge, Everett Rogers, and Geoffrey Moore in order to help churches understand how to overcome systemic resistance to change, including systemic resistance to the gospel, to grace and to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. The third seminar, Decision, will offer examples of tools that make disciples and disciple makers and which integrate and apply the principles taught in the previous two seminars.  The entire project will function as a gentle antithesis to homeostasis in order to provoke multiple conversations that lead to the adoption of disciple making innovations.
