Megachurch Laments Results When Skimping On Sunday School Teachers

In a SermonAudio podcast, the staff of Berean Baptist Church lamented how the average Sunday School teacher does not go beyond the printed curriculum. <p> But isn't that for two basic reasons? <p> Number one, if teachers stick to the curriculum, they have at least that to defend themselves with when the pastor comes to pepper them with a battering of Scripture references should a doctrinal or even a merely an interpretative difference arises in class. <p> Second, even if they love both God and pupils, the Sunday school teacher --- unlike the pastor in most circumstances ---- is just a volunteer. <p> For, to put it bluntly, the Sunday School teacher has other things in life that they also need to attend to and you get what you pay for. <p> If asked to do the other workaday work of the Sunday school teacher, it is doubtful the pastor could do that job without the book or operational manual either. <p> If these pastors want Sunday school teachers as absorbed in the nuances of Scripture and doctrine as professional clergy, pay the Sunday School teachers the wages of a pastor or staff member at a church that already has at least a half dozen pastors and compensated assistants already on the payroll. <p> By Frederick Meekins<p> <p><i>There are answers if you know where to look for them</i><a target="_blank" href="http://faithinchristlives.com/"> <img src="https://www.blogger.com/favicon-image.g?blogID=6799158951463488043" alt="Faith in Christ Lives" style="border:0"> JOIN </a> the Faith in Jesus Network <div class="blogger-post-footer"><center><a href="http://faithinchristlives.com">Faith in Christ Lives - ENTRY Site</a> <i>there are answers if you know where to look for them</i></center> </div>
