Helps church leaders challenge the status quo, identify priorities, and implement change in educational ministries.
Schaller takes an approach contrary to that often recommended by educators. He shows how to identify the priorities for the Christian education program in any church. You will find helpful tips that explain how teaching is the second best way, after preaching, to attract new members; how the teaching ministry is the best way to reach young adults born after 1955; how teaching reinforces preaching and liturgy; how teaching activates the passive congregation; and how teaching is the least costly way to grow a church.
