Install and activate the Genesis Title Toggle plugin - http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-title-toggle/. Then open that page and check the box to turn the title off.
You can do whatever you want. You don't have to stick to the templates that come out the box with the theme. You can create and customize to however you feel comfortable and for what works best for you.
I used the Title Toggle Plugin and it turned off titles for all pages so I had to add <h2>Titles</h2> to all pages (without adding any spaces). Also, I had to add a <p> space above the title to the front page to keep the title from butting up under the header as Eric mentioned above. So, there is a definite difference in the way the front page and other pages treat page titles.
You turned it on globally on the Genesis > Theme Settings page. Turn it off on there. Go to the one page you want to be your new home page and turn it off only on that one page.
Thanks, I missed that "turn-off" on the page edit.
