1. Reed, Wendall D. Biblical Concepts in Action: A Case for Discipleship in the Worship Ministry.

Degree: 2021, Liberty University

The purpose of this qualitative historical study is to examine the discipleship of the worship ministry in the local church according to biblical principles of discipleship. Despite the biblical examples of discipleship benefits, worship ministry personnel are often not included in discipleship efforts from church leadership. The leadership and the congregation alike may assume their spiritual maturity. The preaching ministry and the worship ministry are the most public act of worship viewable by congregants. Some worship ministry volunteers and staff may feel they are expected to have already been discipled and may be reluctant to pursue discipleship engagement. This study allows church leaders and worship leaders to draw from these processes of discipling when making decisions regarding implementing discipleship in the worship ministry. Through the examination of existing literature concerning discipleship and the local church worship ministry, this study will identify possible benefits of discipling volunteer personnel in the worship ministry of the local church, examine the challenges associated with discipleship, and make suggestions for the implementation of discipleship within the worship ministry based on biblical principles.

2. Haspel, Savannah Renae. How Hollywood became the new American dream.

Degree: MA, Strategic Public Relations, 2011, University of Southern California

The American Dream is being Subjugated by The Nation’s Growing Celebrity Worship and Replaced by the Hollywood Dream. ❧ Almost everywhere one looks, celebrities now dominate the American culture. From television shows to household products, Hollywood has burrowed itself into nearly every aspect of people's lives. Many people not only want to emulate celebrities, but more and more want to actually become celebrities, too. This growing trend has impacted the attitudes and aspirations of the nation's youth, shifting from the once-revered hard-working American Dream to the ego-driven Hollywood Dream. This change did not happen overnight; it has been hundreds of years in the making, but has accelerated with a series of events in the last two decades. ❧ History shows that societal and cultural attitudes tend to shift over time. While humans all share the same basic biology needs, major occurrences like wars, economic conditions and technological advancements shape each generation's view of the world. This is now evident as many of the Baby Boomers (age forty-seven to sixty-five), who lived the American Dream, share a vastly different view of success than the majority of their children, the Millennials (age fifteen to thirty-one) do now. Many of the Millennials find it difficult to associate with their parents' aspirational views of America, where hard work brought prosperity, and have therefore sought a convenient shortcut: The Hollywood Dream. ❧ From the burgeoning middle class to the invention of movies to the Internet, much of society's ambitions have move from the family to the individual and the ego. Therefore, it is crucial to understand the different attitudes and motivational drivers for two of the nation's largest and most influential age groups: The Baby Boomers and the Millennials. Because of their enormous presence and buying power, and vast attitudinal differences, knowing how to craft messages and “speak” to these groups will be highly beneficial for public relations practitioners. ❧ This paper will compare celebrity fascination across generations and determine the underlining causes of how the Hollywood Dream replaced the American Dream. Additionally, it will identify key messages and tools that public relations professionals can use to effectively connect with this group. Advisors/Committee Members: Floto, Jennifer D. (Committee Chair), LeVeque, Matthew (Committee Member), Ross, Steven J. (Committee Member).
