IN THE HOME

The purpose of this project is to train men to be spiritual leaders in their homes. Chapter 1 presents the purpose, goals, context, rationale, definitions, limitations, and research methodology of the project.

Chapter 2 is a study of the biblical and theological basis for male spiritual leadership in the home. First, the chapter presents evidence that male spiritual leadership was God’s design for the family prior to man’s fall in to sin. Second, it shows the negative effects on male leadership caused by man’s fall into sin. Finally, the chapter demonstrates how the gospel frees man from sin and equips him to lead his family spiritually.

Chapter 3 addresses theoretical and practical issues related to male spiritual leadership. It demonstrates that in order for a man to lead his family well, he must know the destination to which he is leading, pursue that destination himself with other men, and commit to leading his family in worship and discipleship.

Chapters 4 and 5 provide details of the implementation of the project, as well as numerous evaluations of the project.
