Equipping You with Tools for Ministry.
Here is a sample of types of
classes we offer. All seminars are tailored to your specific training
Philosophy and Vision —
- Telling God’s Story - teaching covenantally • The story line is
the covenant. See how God uses families and congregations to pass it on
from generation to generation. See where you fit.
- Structuring and Organizing Your Christian Education Program •
Designed to introduce your leadership to our workbook. Begin an
evaluation, articulate your purpose, set goals, develop a strategy, and
assess your results. The process requires work over an extended period
of time which could include ongoing consultation with a trainer.
- Understanding and Reaching Every Generation • Understanding the
generation growing up around us is the first step in a concerted effort
to reach them. Very few of them are predicted to profess faith in
The Curriculum —
Great Commission Show Me Jesus Introduction and Training
• Show Me Jesus - That’s what teaching is all about--and the "why" of
what you do. This new name for the Great Commission Publications
curriculum reflects its strong covenantal perspective and God-centered
focus. Discover a reliable, doctrinally-consistent way to disciple young
lives. The initial GCP presentation is free of charge.
The Student —
Loving Your Students • Your class is unique. Every person has
been made in the image of God. Each one carries a legacy of sin and
evil. You will be shown how to love the group God has given you.
- How Students Learn • Learning Styles - Everyone processes
information differently. Understanding these differences will help
students learn and minimize problems that come from boredom or
- Motivating Students • Everybody is motivated to do something.
Many teachers wish their students were motivated to learn. The
ingredients that go into motivation will be examined.
You the Teacher —
- Caught Not Taught • Who you are is more important than what you
say. Thus, a big part of teaching is encouraging your students to follow
you as you follow Christ. That’s making disciples.
- Managing the Classroom
• The fallout from parents unable to provide children adequate
supervision, the effects of divorce, the permissive atmosphere of
society, and the general disrespect for authority combine with the
struggles of sinful people to create problems for teachers. You will
receive perspective and suggestions.
- Making Kingdom-Minded Disciples • What is Kingdom-minded
discipleship? Discipleship involves a transformation of the way we think
and live. How does God’s purpose for His Kingdom differ from His Church?
How do we pass on a transforming message to each new generation? These
and more questions will be examined.
Encouragement and Education for Teachers Teachers are the primary
ingredients in your CE program. The annual refresher courses we
provide for our trainers plus their years of experience with
students qualify them to come alongside your teachers with ideas and
inspiration to enhance their ministry.
