Small groups--Religious aspects--Christianity
Discipleship is a necessary part of the life of the church and the maturation of the believer. Biblical counseling and small groups represent two ways to accomplish that responsibility. By training the small group leaders of Eastridge Baptist Church to counsel biblically, they will be better equipped to disciple their participants and more Christians will receive better soul care. Chapter 1 provides a brief history of Eastridge and describes its current ministry context while explaining the strategic need for this project. Chapter 2 focuses on the biblical foundation for this model of discipleship while chapter 3 explores the practical outworking of this model as seen in other congregations. Chapter 4 provides details of what was taught in the course at EBC, while chapter 5 evaluates the course. The goal of this project is to provide believers in general and small group leaders specifically with a framework to counsel biblically.
