The purpose of this project was to train the married men at Christ Fellowship Church to exercise biblical male headship in their homes. Chapter 1 explains the contextual background for this project, which includes historical information about the church as well as goals and methodology for the project. Chapter 1 also provides definitions of key terms, limitations, and delimitations. Chapter 2 is an exegetical study of cogent passages which are foundational to understanding biblical male headship. The chapter first provides a comprehensive description of male headship from the various texts of Scripture, then the negative effects of the fall upon man’s ability to exercise godly headship are considered. Finally, male headship is described in terms of redemption and the new birth. Chapter 3 addresses the practical application of biblical teaching on male headship. The chapter is an examination of the principles and practices that guide the husband in his labor as the head of his wife. Chapters 4 explains how the project was implemented as well as the results. Chapter 5 contains a critique of the project and what might have been improved upon.
