Historical Timeline Of
The Quail Springs Church of Christ

Oklahoma City
2004 Fall

In the fall of 2004 Wyatt Fenno conducted an eight-session ministry intervention with a pilot group of six women and six men at Quail Springs as the foundational research for his doctoral thesis submitted to ACU entitled, "Living Waters: An Invitation to Contemplative Spirituality for the Quail Springs Church of Christ" (April 2005).

He hoped that this pilot group would be able to pass the things they had learned on to others in the congregation, and that this would improve the spiritual quality of the congregation.

"Contemplative Spirituality" involves the same principles and techniques studied by adult classes in 2000 on the basis of Richard Foster's book. For an evaluation of these principles see "What are Spiritual Disciplines?" under "Adult classes study 'Spiritual Disciplines'" above.
