Two sermon ideas assignment

Note: Actual student samples can be found on the Nazarene Bible College course web pages.

Simplified grading rubric to use as a checklist prior to submitting your work

  1. Was the assignment submitted on time? (by Sunday night of Week 1)
  2. Does the submission contain ideas for two separate sermons on ends-of-the-earth world evangelism?
  3. Did each sermon idea include all three items outlined in the instructions (scripture, title, thesis statement)?
  4. Is it evident that each of the sermons will be a clear call for some kind of involvement in ends-of-the-earth gospel proclamation?
  5. Is there a sense that the two sermon ideas were sparked by the Week 1 Reading and class discussions?
  6. Is the submission relatively free of grammar, spelling, punctuation and word usage mistakes?
  7. In terms of achieving assignment goals, is this work exceptional, excellent, good, acceptable, minimal or inadequate?

"I like the way the professor gives very clear instructions." -- José O., Nazrene Bible College student
