ABSTRACT DEVELOPING A LEADERSHIP TRAINING CURRICULUM BASED ON CHARLES HADDON SPURGEON’S LECTURES TO MY STUDENTS FOR USE AT THE WEST ELK BIBLE INSTITUTE IN GUNNISON, COLORADO Frederick Monroe Barton, D.Min. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2015 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Adam W. Greenway This project encompasses the development of a leadership training curriculum based on Charles Haddon Spurgeon’s Lectures to My Students for use at the West Elk Bible Institute in Gunnison, Colorado. Chapter 1 presents the purpose of the project, the three goals of the project. It also describes the history and context of the West Elk Bible Institute and the rationale for the project. Chapter 2 provides the biblical and theological justification for Christian workers to learn from godly leaders who have preceded them. Chapter 3 shows that the instruction in the five lectures covered in the curriculum is consistent with Charles Spurgeon’s other writings, as well as those of selected Christian and secular leaders. Chapter 4 is the curriculum which has been developed and taught. Chapter 5 is an evaluation of the project; its effectiveness, its strengths and weaknesses, and the personal spiritual growth that took place during the course of the project.
