ABSTRACT DEVELOPING AND IMPLEMENTING A CURRICULUM FOR TEACHING A BIBLICAL META-NARRATIVE TO THE ADULTS AT COLLEGE PARK CHURCH IN INDIANAPOLIS, INDIANA Joseph Robert Bartemus, D.Min. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2015 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. James M. Hamilton Chapter 1 of this project describes the planning and objectives of the project. The development of a curriculum that covers relevant material on the meta-narrative of the Bible was revised and developed. The curriculum involved a video series with two pastors discussing the concept and details of the biblical meta-narrative. Booklets were also developed to complement the spoken material. Facilitators or teachers were trained to utilize the tools to bring about the actual implementation of the project in teaching smaller groups of adults the essence of the overarching biblical meta-narrative of the Bible. Chapter 2 discusses passages from the Old and New Testament which were analyzed to provide biblical validation concerning the need for such a project. Chapter 3 includes an overview of basic educational literature which was summarized in regard to adult learning and curriculum. Chapter 4 describes the steps of the project in detail to show how the implementation occurred. In chapter 5 the project was evaluated and found to be successful based on several factors, including a statistical affirmation. This chapter includes concluding evaluations of the project in terms of accomplishing goals, strengths and weaknesses, and future plans.
