Thank you for the links dab. They were very informative.
So here is what I have done this evening:
I hooked up a ground wire to the back of the ignitor:




and attached it to a previously existing ground screw on the back of the oven


I also sanded the burner and the contact where it meets the oven.


and I still can not get my oven to light.
I will be home all day tomorrow and go through DIS diagnostics and see if I can get this thing to work and let you know what happened.

I am on a mission to get this thing fixed. So I went by the wiring diagram and the testing procedure dab provided and I came up with something strange. When testing the J1 and J2 connector, I get negative 18 volts. To make sure I wasn't doing it wrong, I tested the broil function (J1 to J3) and it measured  +18V. I also noticed that this little guy was REALLY hot. I have a bad feeling my DSI board is bad  :(

Update:
Just for the fun of it, I switched the connectors on the gas valve and switched the wires on the DSI board that go to the ignitors and the bake burner lights up (you have to press broil to make this happen). It is a temporary solution until I get a new board.
So my next question: This thing is not cheap. I found a reman for about $90 and I'm definitely leaning in that direction opposed to a brand new one. Any recommendations on who I should purchase this part from as inexpensively as possible and still get a product I am not going to replace again in 2 years?

This manual is close to yours but does have a different gas valve,But i think you can use t for the DSI board as i think its the same.  https://db.tt/kDI7UP5O

Wow. Very impressive OP. I hate to say it but something had to be bad....it worked for 4 years and boom stopped. Something had to break. Great job
