Pastor as Teacher in the Local Church
— CHED 0664 (3)
Encourages leaders, especially pastors, to develop an educational vision for their congregations. Views education as more than formal teaching which permeates the church from preaching to administration and pastoral care. Beginning with a biblical examination of teaching and education, explores how leaders can integrate an educational vision into a variety of aspects of their ministries so that people grow in their knowledge, understanding, and integration of Christian faith. Specific, practical approaches to education in a variety of church settings will be considered. Practical guidelines for preparing and leading classes will be discussed. In addition, consideration will be given to pastor's role in recruitment, preparation, and support of other teachers in the congregation.
