How do I demonstrate Competency 4? “Guide the student into the integration of both the preaching forms and worship in the Lord’s Supper, giving shape to the church gathering as delivered by the Apostles and as observed by almost all churches of the first 300 years of the Early Church.”
- Most learners draw heavily on their work on Unit 4 projects to demonstrate this competency. Specifically, the first project of “a mini-theology of the Lord’s Supper” is essential to demonstrate this competency. Yet, since the Lord’s Supper probably included some expression of psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs in the early church, the mini-theology from Unit 3 can be included here too. Also, since the Lord’s Supper probably included some catechetical elements in the early church, the primary projects from Unit 1 and Unit 2 can be included here as well. This is the focus of the fifth project in Unit 4 “a one-page annotated summary of the catechetical elements of the Lord’s Supper.”
- The first and fifth projects in Unit 4 can be used to demonstrate the principles that sit at the base of the competency. Any or all of the four remaining projects in Unit 4 can be used to demonstrate that the learner has integrated the competency into contemporary church gatherings. These also can satisfy the “implementation” criteria.
- The project example is intended only to provide general direction. It is not developed enough to fully satisfy Bachelors level or Masters level competency in the Antioch School.
