He is highly known for his numerous works in our church and in our community.

As the sermon began, Reverend Leonard began with a couple of verses from the bible Jeremiah 17: 7-8.

Justification: By reading the exact doctrines handed to early colonial, students can read and interpret for themselves the interweaving of both political and religious ideas. For example, “Thou shalt grant the King a long life: he shall dwell before God forever (4). The Church of England was a part of the government, which many colonists were fleeing. There are prayers also laid out for the sole purpose of exalting the King of England. It is also important to note that this prayer book was published a mere 20 years before independence.

LIBERTY UNIVERSITY THE THEOLGY OF MISSIONS A RESEARCH PAPER SUBMITTED TO DR. H. EDWARD PRUITT GLST 500 GLOBAL STUDIES SURVEY BY SHAWN HUNT CLARKSVILLE, TN July 13, 2014 TABLE OF CONTENTS Introduction 2 Old and New Testament Verses that Support the Theology of Missions 2 Nature of God as Related to Missions 4 4 Theology of Missions and Other Aspects of Theology 5 5 Key Themes of the Theology of Missions 6 6 Missionaries, Church Leaders, Lay People and Theology of Missions 7 7 Conclusion 8 88 Introduction The theology of missions is one of many aspect of the overall study of scriptures. Missions are one of if not the most important task that the church has been tasked with accomplishing.

Theology of mission, however, provides the rails upon which the train should ride.” These rails can be seen in other areas of Biblical study and areas of Christian life.
Carla Johnson Student ID-3486426 EVAN 610 Rainey Reading Reflection 9/19/2010 In our society today, there are several “structures” of ministry that are being utilized to fulfill the Great Commission. These structures consist of program-driven, mission by program, by generation Southern Baptist churches; purpose-driven, mission by purpose, by paradigm Saddleback Churches; community-driven, mission by people, by relationship house, cell, missional communities; seeker-sensitive, mission by profile, by target group,Willow Creek Churches; ministry-driven, mission by mission, by ministry community development, evangelistic/gatherables. The Bible states in Ephesians 4:11-12, “And he gave some apostles and some prophets; and some evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers for the perfecting of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.” With this said, I believe that God has given spiritual leaders a vision for ministry for the perfecting of ministry not for the perfecting of self. I grew up in a Baptist Church that consisted of a Sunday school service which offered classes for adults and youth. Sunday school was followed by an eleven o’clock service that was opened up by the same three to four deacons saying the same old prayer and humming the same hymns every Sunday.
