MetadataShow full item record
This project was designed to train active and potential preachers in the Ellis County Baptist Missionary Association of Texas in the basics of expository preaching. Chapter 1 outlines the ministry context at Heritage Baptist Church, the project's purpose, and the project's goals. Chapter 2 examines the biblical and theological rationale that expository preaching is the biblical model, which the church is responsible for promoting. Chapter 3 investigates learning models for effective training, and provides a method of implementation for those models. Chapter 4 is a review of the specific elements of the project, which consisted mainly of a four-week expository sermon series, and an eleven- week seminar on expository preaching. Chapter 5 is an analysis of the project, specifically data collected from the congregation on the four-part sermon series, the data collected from the students in the seminar class (both pre- and post-questionnaire data), and the implementation of the learning techniques.
