Title: EMPOWERING SPIRITUALLY MATURE LAYPERSONS IN MINISTRY AT THE KOREAN CHURCH OF DALLAS, CARROLLTON, TEXAS
Author: Kwak, Jeongbin
Advisor: Ahn, Sanghee M
Abstract: The purpose of this project was to encourage and empower spiritually mature laypersons of the Korean (Presbyterian) Church of Dallas, Carrollton, Texas.

Chapter 1 describes the ministry context of the Korean Church of Dallas. This includes three background aspects of this project: the history, the current situation and context of the church, detailed demographic data and a growth pattern of KCD.

Chapter 2 examines the biblical and theological basis for this project. It examines in detail Exodus 18:13-26, Ephesians 4:11-12, 1 Peter 5:1-4, and John 21:15-17. These texts emphasize the importance of empowering spiritually mature laypersons to shepherd other laypeople.

Chapter 3 interacts with the theoretical and practical aspects of this project. This chapter discusses three churches, two Presbyterian churches and a Baptist church. These three churches have been researched to find the most suitable ministry method for KCD.

Chapter 4 describes the 15-week project in detail: preparation, the process of Bible study classes and small group ministries, post-and pre-project surveys, and individual interviews.

Finally, chapter 5 evaluates the effectiveness of the project.
