Final Paper Instructions BIBL 321: Youth Evangelism and Discipleship The final paper for the class is a practical project for implementation of evangelism and discipleship for ministry with youth in a local church. The paper will outline a blending of evangelism and discipleship into a year’s worth of youth programming. The creative paper written for this class gave a theoretical basis for an evangelism and discipleship strategy. The final paper is an opportunity to apply that theoretical expression. Do not simply report on what another church is doing. Feel free to borrow ideas from others, but the objective of this assignment is for you to propose an ideal twelve-month calendar that reflects your own ingenuity and applies the principles you learned from this course. Ideally, you will contextualize your plan to meet the needs and considerations of your home church.
