|dc.description.abstract||This project was to develop a plan for increasing evangelism and mission
mobilization at New Birth Cathedral of Praise (NBCP) in Sherman, Texas. The process
involved assessing the congregation’s knowledge of evangelism and missions in order to
develop a curriculum for evangelism and missions. That process then led to the
establishment of a mobilization plan to reach Sherman, Texas, and beyond.
Chapter 1 introduces the ministry context of NBCP, along with the rationale,
purpose, goals, research methodologies, definitions, and delimitations of the project.
Chapter 2 provides the biblical and theological basis for evangelism and mission
mobilization. The gospel of Matthew provides three different models for advancing the
gospel. Matthew 9:36-38 provides a model for gospel motivation; Matthew 10:1-23
provides a model for laborers in evangelism and Matthew 28:19-20 provides a model for
laborers to be mobilized. These passages serve as the basis for increasing evangelism and
Chapter 3 addresses the practical issues related to how the church must be
equipped to communicate the gospel within the anti-Christian culture. Chapter 4 details
the curriculum and lesson plans. Chapter 5 concludes with an overall evaluation of the
project, and suggestions for improvement and further development.||en_US
