Christian Education Administration to Train Bible Teachers
Administration of a Bible Teachers Training Plan
If you are a Director of Christian Education, Sunday School Superintendent, or other ministry leader, one of your responsibilities might be teacher training.
You can develop an effective training plan by taking the following steps:
- Assess teacher needs.
Use a survey, observation and/or personal consultation to help you determine not only what topics teachers need help with but also their learning preferences.
- Determine the best means of meeting teachers' training needs.
Though valid means of training Bible teachers, seminars tend to provide more of a cookie cutter approach. Everyone, regardless of need or teaching experience, receives the same training. Whether pre-service or in-service training, Bible teachers would benefit the most from a variety of means of training.
- Develop a tailored plan to implement training.
How you approach teacher training does matter if you are seeking to develop effective teachers.
Get Your Christian Education Leadership Team on the Same Page
Teacher training efforts will be most successful when the leadership team is all on the same page, particularly when it comes to the overall goal of your church's Christian education ministry. The following resource can help you do that:
- Leaders begin the process of seeing changed lives in students through the structure they establish, curriculum they choose, and the training and support they provide teachers.
- Leaders should be a model, setting the standard and pace for teachers.
