The Importance of Training
Almost the last words of Jesus to His followers were about education and training. Yep, He said, "Now hear this! Now hear this! You all need to stop standing around and get ready to go into the entire world and preach the good news. Make disciples or students of mine by teaching them everything that I taught you."
Any church that does not have a planned, orderly, sequential education;/training plan for the adults is failing to do what The Lord said. Why do we always have a standard Sunday school class for kids but not for adults? Every Pastor and Elder has been to high school and most have attended college. All of us have seen how schools operate. Why then do so few operate a school for adults?
If you were designing an Adult Education Training Program. what would you include in the curriculum? What would you train them to do? How would you combine educational theory with skills?
It can be done. it is being done. But not by many and even then not done well. Why?
