My goal is for this experience to help you grow in your ability to communicate the faith through teaching and discipling ministries with children, youth, and adults (all ages and stages). You will also learn to lead others, facilitating their growth as Christians and as effective servants in education ministries. In the midst of all the tools, techniques, and to do lists, I will be praying that this course enhances your own faith and opens up more room for Jesus to be your true Teacher, your ultimate Guide along The Way.Required Texts 1.
