ABSTRACT EQUIPPING YOUNG ADULTS AT KNOTT AVENUE CHRISTIAN CHURCH IN ANAHEIM, CALIFORNIA, TO SHARE THE GOSPEL Paul Robert Crandell, D.Min. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2015 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Troy W. Temple This project studies the knowledge and skills necessary for young adults to share the gospel effectively. The project seeks to design a curriculum to equip young adults with the proper knowledge and skills to share the gospel. Chapter 1 gives the purpose, goals, context, rationale, definitions, and limitations of the project. Chapter 2 presents the biblical and theological support for equipping young adults to share the gospel. In this chapter, Ephesians 4:11-13 and Matthew 28:18-20 show that every Christian has the responsibility to share the gospel and every pastor has the responsibility to equip his church members to do so. Chapter 3 presents sociological and theoretical support for equipping young adults to share the gospel. In this chapter, both the significance of young adults in past revivals in history and the present importance of young adults in reaching their peers are shown. Chapter 4 explains how the curriculum was created, taught, and evaluated during the fifteen-week period. Chapter 5 offers an evaluation of the project's purpose, goals, strengths, and weaknesses. Possible improvements and other reflections on the project are also given in this chapter.
