Full recordShow full item record
AbstractDeveloped in January 2018, the “Boatloads” Bible study series sought to encourage members of a college life group in Lynchburg, Virginia, to grow spiritually by studying the power of God in ten passages of Scripture involving boats. At the end of the semester, members of the life group were asked to complete an anonymous survey about their experience in the Bible study. To analyze how the “Boatloads” Bible study affected spiritual growth in the lives of its attendees, Abigail Brewer, one of the leaders of the life group, created a two-part survey with ten statements and five questions. Using a Likert scale, participants were asked to rank their level of agreement with the ten statements. In the second section, participants responded to short answer questions by sharing their thoughts regarding each prompt. After compiling the numerical data and short answer responses, Abigail Brewer analyzed the data to understand how the “Boatloads” Bible study affected spiritual growth in the lives of its attendees.
