dc.description.abstractThe intent of this ministry focus paper is to examine past and present trends of Christian education within the context of a postmodern Church and society. This ministry focus paper reviews trends within the Baptist denomination, with a specific focus on the Christian education ministries of Second Baptist Church of Los Angeles and the trends within the African American Baptist Church. A personal definition of Christian education includes the following statement: Christian education is the process of educating, empowering, transforming and liberating the people of God. Christian education can be conceived as “the heartbeat” of the Church because it is the only ministry that has the ability to significantly impact and nurture people across their life spans, from preschool through senior adulthood. A broad definition of Christian education embellishes every teaching and learning experience encountered by the Christian community. Guided by the aforementioned definition, this ministry focus paper addresses two issues. First, it addresses how the Church is educating and equipping the people of God to fulfill the ministry of Jesus Christ in the present as well as in the future. In other words, it addresses how the Church is exemplifying the Great Commission given by Jesus: “Go into all the world and make disciples” (Matthew 28:18-20). Second, this ministry focus paper addresses how the Church is transferring the Christian faith tradition to the next generation of Christian leaders. Several models of ministry were constructed while considering the needs and composition of the membership at Second Baptist Church of Los Angeles. The primary intent was to present models for Christian education that will address the changing context of ministry in the twenty-first century and provide for the needs of the whole people of God. Theological Mentor: Kurt Fredrickson, DMin
