“10 Signs of a Quality Teacher”—Webinar
Wednesday: August 26
7 p.m. ET or 7 p.m. CT
Alan-WilsonInstructor: Alan Wilson, Regular Baptist Press Regional Manager and Workshop Presenter, Arlington Heights, Illinois
Cost: Free
“Am I getting through to these kids? Between the lessons, songs, games, and crafts (throw in a few unexpected bathroom breaks while we’re at it), are they really understanding what I’m conveying to them?” These questions have likely crossed the mind of every person involved in children’s ministry—regardless of how long they’ve been at it! This 45-minute session will look at 10 signs of a quality teacher and how to bring an attitude of quality into all phases of teaching. It is a great opportunity for pastors, children’s ministry leaders, and teachers of all experience levels to take advantage of a time during the week when many congregations are already gathered together. Churches are invited to register and include the live webinar as part of their Wednesday night meeting.

“Pastors should be exegetes of both Scripture and culture.” This refrain is commonly heard in ministry circles today. But while divinity students spend years learning to exegete Scripture, very little training is ever provided in cultural analysis. Designed to stimulate interest in and competence for cultural exegesis, this webinar will discuss the why, when, and how of expounding current events and cultural trends in the context of pastoral ministry.
“Pastoral Care Challenges”—Learning Lab

Providing compassionate and appropriate care to a church family today can be complicated and challenging for any pastor or church leader. Sessions will provide Biblical encouragement and practical help in ministering God’s love, grace, and truth to those who may be struggling with a variety of problems today. Also, participants will have the opportunity to interact online or through e-mail with the presenter. Topics will include compassionate care for hospital patients and the bereaved. A personalized Q & A session and set of notes will be included in this three-part learning lab.
“Strong Church: Building and Measuring Mature Disciples”—Learning Lab

How does a church become strong? The singular answer is that intentional instruction of the Word of God develops believers toward spiritual maturity. These three-part sessions will guide participants in developing an instructional taxonomy for teaching the whole Bible, designing tools to assess the progress of disciples toward spiritual maturity, and creating instructional plans to improve the learning environment within the church. The book Strong Church will be required reading.
