The purpose of this project was to equip members of Pendleton Street Baptist Church (PSBC), in Greenville, South Carolina to use the Bible in a daily time of study and prayer. Chapter 1 explains the ministry context of PSBC and demonstrates the need for equipping church members to learn to meditate upon the Scriptures, by studying and praying them on a daily basis. Chapter 2 gives theological evidence that supports the purpose of this project, by demonstrating that the Bible clearly teaches and expects God’s people to study and pray the Scriptures regularly. Chapter 3 gives historical and practical evidence that supports the purpose of this project by demonstrating the importance of Scripture meditation through regular study and prayer, by Christians throughout the history of the church. Chapter 4 provides a detailed account of this project’s creation and implementation at PSBC. Chapter 5 is an evaluation of the project. This chapter determines if the equipping course curriculum was effective in training church members to use the Bible in a daily time of study and prayer.||en_US
