1. Gossett, Michael Wayne. Lay Leader Development and the Model of Christ: Intentional Small Group Organization for Multiplying Groups at Green Acres Baptist Church.

Degree: 2020, Liberty University

The purpose of this thesis is to develop a strategic process for leader development utilizing small groups at Green Acres Baptist Church in Tyler, Texas. The development of lay leaders will determine the efforts of starting and sustaining small groups and ministry efforts in the local church. The structure of groups and the strategy to develop leaders should be a replicable system formulated within biblical parameters. The biblical research is concentrated toward the methods practiced by Jesus with his disciples. Biblical discipleship is examined for the purpose of assessing adequate organization that cultivate leader development and group multiplication. Effective small group systems will be identified for the purpose of leader development and group multiplication at Green Acres Baptist Church. The efforts of multiplication will cease to occur if leaders are not adequately equipped and trained to begin new small groups. This thesis will give a replicable system of how to organize small groups in the local church as well as a strategy to equip lay leaders to identify and develop other lay leaders for the purpose of starting new groups.
