Spiritual Growth and Development.
Wakefield, Dara V.
Spiritual living demands growth, and spiritual development has many parallels with human development. Ministers who are knowledgeable of the various stages are best prepared to assist and optimize spiritual growth. The primary benefit of nurturing believers through developmental stages is assured spiritual health and maturity in the context of a strong church family. The "Spiritual Growth and Development Table" briefly outlines the following seven stages of spiritual development: Values Rationale (loosely based on research conducted by Lawrence Kohlberg); Bible Study Nutrition; Prayer and Communication; Nurture, Shelter, and Protection; Evangelism; Ministry Opportunities; and Concerns and Dangers.
