MetadataShow full item record
This Doctor of Ministry project was developed to equip members of First Baptist Church in Mt. Sterling, Kentucky to make disciples through one-on-one Bible reading. This was achieved through a six-week one-on-one Bible reading course. During this course, the large group sessions focused on the biblical/theological underpinning for one-on-one Bible reading, basic principles of hermeneutics, and practical advice for successful one-on-one Bible reading partnerships. After each session, participants read through a Bible study on the section of Mark with a Bible reading partner as homework.Chapter 1 explores the ministry context of First Baptist Church, as well as the rationale, purpose, research methodology, and the definitions/delimitations of the project. Chapter 2 gives the biblical and theological basis for the project, exploring how one-on-one Bible reading is one method by which Christians can fulfill Christ's command to make disciples. Chapter 3 flows from this chapter and considers why this method of disciple-making is particularly effective for churches today. After this, chapter 4 provides a clear description of the project and will outline its implementation. Finally, chapter 5 evaluates the project and includes personal and theological reflection.
