Invitation to the Sunday School Growth Academy

Thursday 20th January, 2011

What would happen if a pastor and Sunday School director participated in an experience in which they were able to receive inspiration and information about Sunday School and were led to pray, set goals, and make and calendar plans for growth actions? The experience would likely lead to significant conversation, renewed excitement about what God wants to do, as well as Sunday School change and growth.

As a result, I can picture the pastor and director establishing (calendaring) regular times of communicating with each other. I can picture regular Sunday School teacher/worker meetings to pray, share about goals, check on progress, get challenged by training, and communicate needs. I can picture appreciation events, new workers enlisted, care increased, new classes started, new people invited and enrolled, and lost people saved.

That is the goal for the Sunday School Growth Academy on April 29-30, 2011, at the Paroquet Springs Conference Center in Shepherdsville, Kentucky. The Academy, planned for pastor/staff-director teams, will begin on Friday at 1:30 PM and conclude on Saturday at 3:00 PM. The Academy is designed to help these pastor/staff-director teams to see the value and potential of the Sunday School for carrying out the Great Commission work our Lord has given us. And each general session of the Academy will lead these pastor/staff-director teams to discuss, plan, and calendar Sunday School growth actions.

Because the greatest benefit from the Academy will be gained by teams, the cost is $100 for one person, $150 for a two-person team, or $200 for a three-person team from the same church. The cost will cover meals and breaks, notebook, Sunday School books and resources, as well as training by national, state, and local Sunday School leaders.

Come for help. Come to learn. Come be inspired. Leave with a plan for growth.
