Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

We Can Rebuild These Walls: Assessing the Mission of the Morning Star Baptist Church and Discerning Paths towards Social Justice
by Williams, Gregory LarVelle, D.Min., Virginia Union University, 2019, 129; 13866107
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this study is to help the Morning Star Baptist Church of Petersburg, Virginia, an established urban congregation, become engaged in the social problems that negatively affect the surrounding area and community. This ministry project develops a discipleship model for Christian witness that encourages awareness and departs from a tendency toward theological conservatism and complacency in a time that requires a social gospel orientation to its notion of service to the community. A by-product of this awareness will be the church’s intent to create and equip a social justice auxiliary/ministry within the Morning Star Baptist Church.
