ABSTRACT EQUIPPING YOUNG ADULT SMALL GROUP LEADERSHIP AND DISCIPLESHIP AT BRENTWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH IN BRENTWOOD, TENNESSEE Matthew James Purdom, DMin The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, 2020 Faculty Supervisor: Dr. Donald S. Whitney The purpose of this project was to develop a disciple-making strategy among the young adult small group leaders of Brentwood Baptist Church. Chapter 1 explores the context of ministry at Kairos while determining the need of the stated project, as well as the goals and methodology to achieve success. Chapter 2 provides the biblical and theological foundations for small group ministry of disciples making disciples as an exegesis of Ezekiel 34, Matthew 9:35-38, Acts 2:42-47, James 5:13-18, and 2 Timothy 2:1-7 are applied to the project. Chapter 3 examines the theoretical and practical issues concerning disciplemaking. The chapter provides a solution by the use of proxemics, in addition to the spiritual disciplines in small group ministry. Chapter 4 describes the project, including curriculum development, approval, promotion, and implementation. Chapter 5 evaluates the project for effectiveness, details areas for improvement, and concludes with theological and personal reflections.
