The purpose of this ministry research project was to enrich the Black worship experience at the Mt. Ararat Baptist Church, Nashville, Tenn, by reclaiming its worship heritage. Cultural terms such as "Black" and "celebrative" were defined along with the direction the project would take. Biblical, theological, and historical research were presented as foundations for Black worship enrichment in chapter 2. Chapter 3 analyzed the congregation for the need of the project using social research. A program of worship enrichment stressing heritage awareness was presented. Chapter 4 evaluated the project as needed and successful. Projections for future research and ministry concluded the study.
