Favorite Post: Free Training Materials for Sunday School Teachers

Wednesday 1st July, 2009
Training to give God and His Body our best effort is essential. I could spend days and lots of blog posts highlighting great materials you can purchase and conferences you can attend. But we live in a great day of technology. Much information is available to us for free. Some of it is very helpful and comes with a variety of tools for putting it to effective use.

Here are several free LifeWay Christian Resources training resources (books, PowerPoint presentations, handouts, and teaching plans) for each of the following resources. Rather than print the books, I would recommend purchase since the cost of paper and ink to print them will likely exceed the US cost of $1.00 to $1.50 for the books plus shipping.

LifeWay also provides a set of supplemental current event/illustrations and teaching plans for Bible Studies for Life and for Explore the Bible. You can find those free materials at www.lifeway.com/extra. This list could go on and on. I want to include one more resource that those using LifeWay's literature, Bible Studies for Life, may find helpful. It is a set of support materials developed by Dr. Steve Armstrong who is a professor at LaTourneau University and a senior adult teacher at Mobberly Baptist Church in Longview, Texas.

Also, my friend, Josh Hunt, has many great free articles and some great books (for sale) along with great questions to go along with LifeWay lessons. You can find Josh's website at www.joshhunt.com.

Need to provide teacher training? Don't have much money? Now you don't have an excuse. You can train your teachers with these high-quality, free materials for months and years to come. Start planning now. Raise your expectations. Increase your training. Release workers into the harvest. Give God your best. Be revolutionary!

    Sunday School is a time-tested, effective method of discipleship. However, due to a lack of volunteers many churches are trying alternatives. I feel that the rational that students become dependent upon the program or the adult mentor for spiritual growth is a cop out.

    It does require a strong commitment on the part of the teacher. We must accept the responsibility for our kids as the family of Christ. As a Sunday School teacher you will have a pivotal mentoring role in the lives of your students long after they graduate. Thank you for all the helpful links and resources. Check out my website for ree lesson plans too: Sunday School Lesson Connection.

    I am currently the president of the youth board and the youth in our church have gone through a couple of losses as far as teachers and facilities. We have lots of children under the age of 12 but we have quite a few children over the age of 12 and I would just like some help with organizing the 2 groups. Whatever materials you have that we can use to get ideas about increasing attendance, it would be helpful.
