Endorsement from University of Northwestern–St. Paul that is using the College Version in their core curriculum:

Life in 5-D presents a holistic model for discipleship that reflects the Kingdom values of Jesus. At the University of Northwestern–St. Paul, we use the authors’ Discipleship Dynamics Assessment in our core curriculum because we want to send out graduates who are fully devoted to Jesus and who live out the values of Jesus wherever God sends them. Life in 5-D complements this assessment by offering a biblical and practical discussion of thirty-five holistic outcomes that we can expect to see in the life of a disciple.”
