There are as many options for training Sunday School leaders as there are Sunday School leaders to be trained! While that statement isn’t exactly true, hopefully it illustrates the variety of training opportunities available to your leaders. The Church Growth team will work with your Sunday School leadership to design training that meets the particular needs of your leaders and the purposes you want to fulfill. The Church Growth team will help you determine the training needs to be addressed and will tailor the training to fit your situation.
Training events take a variety of formats such as:

A Friday Evening and Saturday morning;
– Saturday morning through Saturday afternoon;
– Sunday afternoon after worship;
– All Sunday School leaders trained together in a large-group setting;
– Training for individual age groups – preschool, children, youth, adults
– At your church
– In a retreat setting;
– Your church only;
– Churches within a given area; or
– Churches within a given culture group


We believe that Jesus is all about transforming the heart and the mind, and that the very best opportunity for that to happen is in a small group setting. Whether you lead a home group, or even lead a Bible study under a tree before worship; God is using you to help make disciples who love Jesus, love their church, and want to share the message of Jesus Christ with the world. Our ministry is to provide resources and training that assists Bible study leaders to develop disciples that impact lostness in their neighborhoods.
