Do You Need Sunday School Blueprints?

Thursday 5th January, 2012

If you are in or near Kentucky, I want to invite all pastor and Sunday School director teams to attend one of the Blueprints for Sunday School Growth events. They are scheduled through June of 2012. Here are the details:

WHY: Too many Sunday Schools have stopped growing. Leadership, knowledge, and a strategy are needed. Blueprints for Sunday School Growth has been designed to help Sunday School teams learn, raise expectations, calendar growth actions, set goals, and lead their Sunday Schools to realize new levels of growth and Kingdom impact.

WHO: Designed for pastor and Sunday School director teams. Can include other members of your core Sunday School planning team.

WHAT: Six hours of training and team planning to lead your Sunday School to grow. Planning times are built into the event schedule to enable team calendaring and goal setting. Here are the topics which will be covered:

  • Biblical purpose/mission of Sunday School
  • Grow Through an Annual Sunday School Growth Retreat
  • Pastor and Sunday School director relationships
  • Monthly Sunday School growth meetings
  • Sunday School leader enlistment and care
  • Sunday School growth budgeting and leader training
  • Add new people to the Sunday School bucket
  • Organize for Sunday School outreach and care
  • Sunday School enrollment and contacts
  • Promotion of Sunday School
  • Deepen relationships through Sunday School fellowship, projects, and meals
  • Add more Sunday School buckets: apprenticing
  • Add more Sunday School buckets: seed groups, off-site groups, and space
In addition to these General Session topics, participants will be able to choose from two Elective Conferences: "Teaching That Bears Fruit" and "101 Ways for Sunday School to Reach Out."

Unless an address is listed, call the number listed for an exact location for your choice. Due to meals, reservations are required. Call early to reserve your team's spot for this training.
