INTEGRATING EXPOSITORY PREACHING AND TEACHING AS THE MODEL OF MINISTRY FOR PRAY'S MILL BAPTIST CHURCH Joshua Shane Buice, D.Min. The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2013 Chair: Dr. Robert A. Vogel This project has one overarching goal that seeks to establish expository preaching as the primary method of Bible teaching for Pray's Mill Baptist Church. This goal transcends the time period of this project and looks into the future of our congregation. The first chapter introduces Pray's Mill Baptist Church and the Douglas County community. Chapter 2 lays out a theological foundation for the goals of the project. Chapter 3 evaluates the strengths and weaknesses of preaching methods and examines training techniques related to biblical hermeneutics. The preaching methods reviewed include topical preaching, doctrinal preaching, allegorical preaching, and expository preaching. The hermeneutical techniques reviewed include evaluating the words, the original human author, contextual interpretation, and the single meaning hermeneutic. Chapter 4 explains the process of the project in the life of Pray's Mill Baptist Church. Chapter 5 is an analysis of the project's results in the life of the church.
