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. Corey D.B. Walker will focus his plenary presentation on theme of “Education as Liberation.” This summer, Dr. Walker became Dean of the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology and Vice President at Virginia Union University. An interactive time of dialogue will follow the plenary presentation for participants to 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.
