Teachers and educational leaders in local congregations need both a love of God and a “toolbox” of teaching tools. Without either, the important work of making disciples can fall short. Teachers’ Toolbox is designed to help build that toolbox! Whether you’re a brand new teacher or have been teaching for awhile, you’ll gain useful tools to strengthen your ministry!
Dr. Adam Bond will share insights from his new book, Church on Purpose: Reinventing Discipleship, Community, and Justice, a collection of big ideas from emerging Christian leaders passionately committed to the ministry of the local church – and deeply invested in congregations’ ability to adapt with new generations. Dr. Bond is director of the Center for Lifelong Learning and Associate Professor of Historical Studies at the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union University. An interactive time of dialogue will follow the plenary presentation where participants can share insights and ask questions.
In addition, you’ll choose from four workshops with ideas and strategies for teaching and learning that transform rather than simply informing! Workshop topics to be announced soon.
Teachers’ Toolbox is co-sponsored by The Resource Center, Presbytery of the James Resource Center Purpose Group, and the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology at Virginia Union University. We are grateful to our host congregation for their hospitality:
