ABSTRACT IMPLEMENTATION OF A SERMON-BASED SMALL GROUP CURRICULUM AT HARVEST BIBLE CHAPEL, SAN ANTONIO, TEXAS Ricky Verndale Kyles, D.Ed.Min. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2016 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Shane W. Parker This project examines the processes for establishing an effective curriculum for Harvest Bible Chapel. Chapter 1 examines the context of the church and community, develops the goal for completing the project, and posits the philosophy of ministry and rationale for the project. Chapter 2 addresses the biblical perspective of holistic learning, first by exploring the Old Testament and then the New Testament. Holistic learning is defined as learning that targets the emotive and volitional dimensions as opposed to learning in which only the intellectual dimension is stimulated. Chapter 3 examines the varying components of learning. The components that are addressed include the roles of the teacher and the learner, advantages of spiral learning as opposed to linear learning, and the advantages small groups have on learning. Chapter 4 records the implementation process of the project. A detailed description is given to each step of the project. The goal of this project is that any leader would be able to implement this project for their ministries by following the steps listed. Chapter 5 evaluates the project. The purpose of this chapter is to identify strengths and weaknesses of the project and to record theological and personal reflections concerning the project.
