dc.description.abstractThis research project sought to incorporate lay leaders in the preparation, evaluation, and application of expository messages at Bethany Community Church, Washington, Illinois. Chapter 1 introduces the goals for and an overview of the project. Chapter 2 explores the relationship between the pastor and the plurality of shepherds from a biblical perspective. It considers the prominent teaching role of a single pastor/elder while also contending that all elders bear responsibility for the pulpit ministry of the church. Chapter 3 examines the dynamics of teams and how they accomplish tasks, looking at several examples of churches seeking to incorporate teams into the pulpit ministry. Chapter 4 details the actual carrying out of the project. In chapter 5 the project is evaluated, concluding that the research project proved to be effective in incorporating lay leadership into the expository preaching ministry at Bethany Community Church in Washington, Illinois.en_US
