Equipping Undergraduates to Engage in Missional Apologetics at Broadway Baptist Church, Maryville, TN
MetadataShow full item record
This project is intended to equip undergraduates to engage in missional apologetics at Broadway Baptist Church in Maryville, TN. This is accomplished by implementing a strategic ministry plan to partner with campus ministries and equip their students through apologetics training. Chapter 1 describes both the context and the rationale for this project in detail. Chapters 2 and 3 contain exegetical, historical, and methodological warrant for the project. In chapter 2, the exegesis of 1 Peter 3:15 yields biblical principles which provide definition to the concept and practice of apologetics. The exegesis of Colossians 1:23–2:8 provides warrant for equipping undergraduates in the practice of apologetics. Chapter 3 is comprised of both the historical and methodological support for the project. First, the Apostolic model of apologetics described in chapter 2 is shown to have continued into later ages of the church’s history. Following that, an integrative method of apologetics that corresponds with the missional approach exemplified in Scripture and history is put forward. Chapter 4 details the implementation of the project’s ministry plan and curriculum. Chapter 5 is an analysis of the data gathered during the weeks of implementation.
