A Manual For An Evangelical State Prison Chaplaincy, Aaron Mobley 2016 Liberty University

A Manual For An Evangelical State Prison Chaplaincy, Aaron Mobley

Doctoral Dissertations and Projects

This thesis will include the practical guidelines for prison chaplaincy in local state Department of Corrections. The goal would be to develop an instruction manual for new evangelical ministers entering into the State Prison Chaplaincy. Prison chaplains are frequently unprepared for ministry to incarcerated individuals. Chaplaincy is a difficult position and the prison environment adds to the difficulty. Too often Chaplains are under trained which magnifies the complexity of the position. In the prison environment they are trained in security issues but the religious issues are left untouched. This manual will assist newly hired Chaplains to become better acquainted with ...

A Narrative, Missional Approach To Discipleship And Spiritual Growth, Travis A. Sharpe 2016 Lipscomb University

A Narrative, Missional Approach To Discipleship And Spiritual Growth, Travis A. Sharpe

Discernment: Theology and the Practice of Ministry

All Christians have the desire to grow in faith and knowledge of God. The difficulty is that most do not have the tools to help them accomplish the task. While churches desire to help their members grow in faith, many have never created an intentional plan to make spiritual formation possible. While there are a multitude of ways this could be accomplished, one avenue would be for churches to implement an intentional discipleship program. A discipleship program that combines a missional/narrative reading of scripture with spiritual disciplines has been shown to help participants grow in spiritual formation and join ...

The Contributions Of Faith-Based Organizations To Development And The Humanitarian Field: An Adra Case Study, Alexandra Raney, Joel Raveloharimisy 2016 Andrews University

The Contributions Of Faith-Based Organizations To Development And The Humanitarian Field: An Adra Case Study, Alexandra Raney, Joel Raveloharimisy

Interdisciplinary Journal of Best Practices in Global Development

The purpose of this paper is to explain the contributions of faith-based organizations (FBOs) to development and the humanitarian field. To do this we used mixed methods research to conduct a case study of the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA), evaluating its mission, mandate, organizational resources, and activities conducted in 136 countries around the world. We argue that the contributions of FBOs to development and the humanitarian field are explained by the interplay of their identity, resources, and opportunities to do good. The paper concludes with recommendations for FBOs as we move toward the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals, while ...

Lost In Translation: The Historical And Cultural Influences That Shaped Chinese Hymnody, Kristen L. Keller 2016 Liberty University

Lost In Translation: The Historical And Cultural Influences That Shaped Chinese Hymnody, Kristen L. Keller

Senior Honors Theses

The development of China’s hymnody spans hundreds of years of Christianity seeking to find its own musical expression within Chinese culture. Western missionaries’ mentalities and actions as well as concurrent Chinese political and cultural changes fundamentally influenced early Chinese-Christian worship music and set the course for the early Chinese hymnody’s primarily Western influences. The spectrum of diverse individual perspectives on this matter, as seen in discussions between missionaries as well as the sporadic expression of national believers’ opinions through platforms such as The Chinese Recorder, demonstrates the damaging ethnocentric attitudes of many missionaries in the movement towards a ...
