The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2017
Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Shane W. Parker
This project shows how to equip Hispanics leaders of the Tattnall-Evans Baptist Association in Southeast Georgia for cross-cultural evangelism. The participants were trained using simple but effective resources that can be reproduced. Chapter 1 provides the ministry context of the Hispanic community in Claxton, Reidsville, Glennville, and Aline, Georgia. Chapter 2 presents the biblical and theological bases for doing cross-cultural evangelism, covering some Old and New Testaments characters who were involved in cross-cultural evangelism. Chapter 3 deals with the theoretical and sociological foundation of cross-cultural evangelism. It takes into account the importance of understanding one’s generation, culture, and religious background. Chapter 4 describes the implementation of the project. Chapter 5 presents an evaluation of the purpose, goals, strengths, and weakness of the project and discusses what could have been done differently as well as personal theological reflections.||en_US
