Brian Anthony Malone D.Min.
The purpose of this project was to enhance the project director’s genre-sensitive expository preaching skills in order to enrich Bible exposition within the congregation at Galilee First Baptist Church, Gloster, Mississippi. The project is based on the ministry skill enhancement model. The project director researched the fields of expository preaching and biblical genre, focusing on six of the major genres of Scripture: narrative, poetry, wisdom literature, parable, epistles, and Revelation. Annotated bibliographies and reports on expository preaching and biblical genre were reviewed by Dr. Lewis Richerson and Dr. Steven Smith, experts in the fields of expository preaching and biblical genre. From the reports, rubrics were created to evaluate the sermon development process. The project director developed sermon structures, outlines, and manuscripts utilizing the knowledge gained from the research to structure the sermon according to the structure and genre of the text. The project director delivered six sermons to the congregation of Galilee First Baptist Church. Dr. Richerson and Dr. Smith evaluated the sermon structures, outlines, and sermon videos. Finally, a questionnaire was created and given to determine if the listener enriched their Bible exposition skills as the project director endeavored to be faithful to the structure and genre of the text.
