Full Title
Establishing a Pastor-Led, Member-Fulfilled Disciple-Making Ministry at Mayhill Baptist Church in Mayhill, New Mexico
Abstract
This project seeks to equip the members of Mayhill Baptist Church in Mayhill, New Mexico, a rural church revitalization effort in the Sacramento Mountains, to share their faith utilizing the Path for P.E.A.C.E. disciple-making model. Chapter 1 presents the history and ministry context of Mayhill Baptist Church and the goals of this project. Chapter 2 provides exegesis of several passages of Scripture (Eph 4:11-12; Matt 28:16-20; various passages in the Gospels, Romans, and Acts; Heb 3:12-14) to show that God commands pastors to equip the saints and every saint to make disciples. Chapter 3 posits the position that for ministry effectiveness to occur, the load of evangelism is not carried only by the pastor, but by every member of the church. Chapter 4 describes the project itself, including the timing and teaching methodology along the way. Chapter 5 evaluates the success of the project based on the completion of specified goals. Ultimately, this project seeks to equip all believers with the tools necessary to share their faith.
