    Invitation to Educational Ministry

    Foundations of Transformative Christian Education

    Because teaching is at the heart of Christian ministry, the editors of Invitation to Educational Ministry have assembled a team of seasoned experts to present a comprehensive plan of Christian education. This volume will help church staff, parachurch leaders, and small-group teachers become more effective, influential, and creative.

    After laying a biblical and practical foundation for Christian education, the contributors provide specific guidance on teaching a variety of individuals and groups, including children, adults, singles, seniors, and non-Christians.

    The final section shares valuable insights on leading small groups, teaching innovatively, and overseeing a healthy educational ministry, among other topics. Each chapter is designed to equip educators with the most relevant information, and includes many useful features:
    • Real-life case studies
    • Scriptural support
    • Explanations of key terms and concepts
    • Practical suggestions
    • Resources for additional study
    • Sidebars illustrating best principles and practices
