ABSTRACT USING THE FOUR C’S DISCIPLESHIP APPROACH TO EQUIP MEN AT GRACE COMMUNITY CHURCH IN SUN VALLEY, CALIFORNIA, TO APPLY THE BIBLE Daniel Marc Schubert, D.Min. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2017 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Stuart W. Scott This ministry project was designed to develop and teach a men’s discipleship course using the 4C’s methodology, to help men in the Men of the Word ministry apply the Bible, and equip them to help others apply the Bible. Chapter 1 outlines the project’s ministry context at Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, in addition to its rationale, purpose, goals, and research methodology. Chapter 2 examines the biblical and theological rationale behind using the 4C’s training method (content, character, competent, and community) to help apply the Bible. Chapter 3 studies theoretical and practical issues related to how other discipleship curriculums and cognitive science can help to apply the Bible. Chapter 4 describes the project training structure and other details including homework and lecture content, in a way that another church could replicate the training. Chapter 5 evaluates the implementation of the project to see if it accomplished both its original purpose and goals using a student pre- and post-training survey; while also looking at the project’s strengths and weaknesses.
