Church work with men
This project is designed to equip young men at First Baptist Church, Sherwood, Arkansas, to be the primary spiritual leaders in their homes. Chapter 1 introduces the ministry context, along with the purpose, goals, rationale, definitions, limitations, delimitations, and research methodologies of the project. Chapter 2 provides the biblical and theological basis for a man’s spiritual leadership within the home. A thorough exegesis of Ephesians 4:19-6:4 demonstrates that God has both called and equipped men in their roles as husbands and fathers to lead their families to treasure Jesus Christ. Chapter 3 offers practical guidance for how a man can lead his family to treasure Jesus Christ. Particular emphasis is placed upon developing personal practices that honor Christ, establishing a home that is saturated with God’s Word, ensuring the home is gospel-centered, and developing an intentional spiritual growth plan for the family. Chapter 4 provides the details of the three phases of project implementation, including an initial preparation phase, a teaching phase, and a follow-up phase. Chapter 5 offers an evaluation of the results of the project, theological and personal reflections, key takeaways, and next steps.
