Encourages leaders, especially pastors, to develop an educational vision for their congregations. Views education as more than formal teaching that 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 a pastor's role in recruitment, preparation and support of other teachers in the congregation. Same as PAST 0664.
