It’s been 10 years and I’ve loved being able to resource teachers across the globe though Jesus without language.
To celebrate I’ve made up a pack of teacher resources and I’m releasing one part each day for the next 10 days.
This weeks offerings are all about placing us in the right place as we embark on teaching. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been teaching for years or your just about to start you first session these pages are helpful for you to paint a clear picture of how you approach your teaching time.
Today we are doing a heart one: Our learning.
Often people will talk about “working” in children’s ministry or “serving” in the Sunday school or “pouring into” the lives of the young. But teaching should always be a two way process. If it’s not you are seriously missing out on something, as are your kids! Lets be honest, we’ve all known one teacher who overly relies on the materials and a knowledge of classic Bible stories to guide them. Their personal faith has stagnated and they justify it by “always being in with the kids!” When we see our teaching as a way of feeding us too, the lesson transforms and we model community growth and lifelong learning. It may not be an exegesis on the life of Lot but most of Jesus’s teaching was simple parables.
