This Doctor of Ministry Project addressed the need of the Cornerstone Christian Church of Pikeville, KY to develop new and creative ways to educate and build community among its members, while overcoming a shortage of qualified teachers and classroom space. The project inaugurated an eight-week e-learning small group that followed the principles of constructivist learning theory and the Community of Inquiry model. Ultimately, this project offers conclusions about the process of fostering Christian community through e-learning small groups and provides suggestions to church leaders who would like to use e-learning small groups to meet people where they are--the Intenet--for the purpose of fellowship and education.
