Thank you for your interest in the doctoral video devotional research project!

The project is being conducted by Pastor Greg Phelps in accordance with his doctoral studies at Southeastern University. Everyone is welcome to participate.

Your participation in this project will be used to develop research into the use of video devotions provided by the local church.

What the project entails:

To sign up for the project you will be asked to complete a pre-questionnaire survey. The survey only takes less than two minutes to complete. All of your answers will be provided to the researcher anonymously. Your answers will not be connected to your name or information.

Complete the survey and sign up now! The project will begin in January. On  January 6th pastor Greg will begin a month-long sermon series on spiritual growth. From each sermon, four video devotions, that will run about 10 minutes, will be created each week and made available online. During the week you will be notified about the next video devotion through the Church’s YouTube channel, email, Instagram or Tweeter. A total of sixteen video devotions will be created for the project. At the conclusion of the final week, you will be asked to complete another short online survey. This post-questionnaire survey will again allow you to record anonymous answers. You do not need to attend Core Church to participate in the project. If you wish, you can listen or view the sermons online from which the devotions will be derived, however, listening or watching the weekly sermon is not required to participate in the study.

If you have any questions during the project you will be able to contact Pastor Greg. Simply, return to this page and complete the contact form below.

This project is being conducted for the partial fulfillment of a doctorate of ministry degree from Southeastern University.
