Implementing a Curriculum on Salvation History at GraceLife Church, Calgary, Alberta
MetadataShow full item record
Leadership develops in descending order from character to conviction, from convictions to competency, from competency to confidence. This project develops a model and curriculum for training leaders to develop according to this template by understanding and embracing salvation history. Convinced that the record of God’s work of redemption begun in Genesis continues to the present day, Church leaders should grow from character through confidence by learning their role in this narrative. Chapter 1 looks at the context of the leadership discipleship program at GraceLife Church of Calgary. Chapter 2 considers biblical examples of rooting ministry practice in salvation history and urges current ministry practitioners to share this same model. Chapter 3 lays a foundation for ministry rooted in salvation history through a key discussion of the New Testament and early church ecclesial perspectives. Upon this foundation, a theoretical framework is established demonstrating how salvation history functionally prepares one for practical ministry. The chapter concludes by looking at several active ministries following such a model as exemplars. Chapters 4 and 5 examine the project’s details, then discusses and analyzes its effectiveness.
