D.Min. headings Discipling (Christianity) – is currently a buzz word; I tend to use this for one-on-one spiritual growth relationships, meant to multiply to other one-on-one relationships. I base this on the work cat. But the scope note is broader. 680 ǂi Here are entered works on the process of teaching and training for growth in Christian discipleship. Works on the development of spiritual disciplines and spiritual growth are entered under ǂa Spiritual formation. Mentoring in Church work - I’d use this for one-on-one teaching church practices or leadership, different from spiritual growth

Disciple-makers' handbook 505 What is disciplemaking? -- Disciplemaking is intentional -- Disciplemaking is individualized -- Disciplemaking is inspired -- Authority and truth : beyond cultural barriers -- Fear : beyond personal obstacles -- How to be a friend -- How to establish a discipling relationship -- How to model the Christian life -- How to help people who hurt -- How people change -- How to use Scripture in disciplemaking -- How to help your friend share the faith.

D.Min. headings No 680 scope note for Group Ministry. Clues about usage of Group ministry 450 Multiple staff ministry 053 BV675 – next to numbers for Associate ministers and Clergy couples So do NOT use for clergy and lay cooperation, or lay teams.
D.Min. headings Clues about usage of Cooperative ministry look at LC usage: search for the subject in WorldCat, limited to DLC, click on “date” to sort by date, and look for the early usage
Some DLC usage for the subject heading Cooperative Ministry 245 Cooperative ministry : hope for small churches, c1984. 245 Sharing more than a pastor, c1993. 245 Cooperating congregations : portraits of mission strategies, c1999. 505 Tri-county ministry, North Dakota -- North Central cluster, West Virginia -- Upper Sand Mountain Parish, Alabama -- Milwaukee strategy, Wisconsin -- Mission at the eastward, Maine

Spirituality, some related headings Spiritual healing - was established for physical ailments (i.e. back problems, one leg long than another, cancer tumor) healed by spiritual means (i.e. prayer).
