Would you like to have every teacher in your church equipped to teach God’s Word in such a way as to bring about spiritual transformation in their class members’ lives? Of course you would! If you are a church staff leader, one of your primary goals is to practically implement Ephesians 4:11ff and “prepare the saints for works of service.” What’s your plan for training your leaders in 2012?
May I suggest that you take a look at LifeWay’s “Transform” events that will be held in strategic locations around the country this year? In 2011 the Transform events were packed with teachers and church leaders who sought to learn how to do more than just teach a lesson each week. They received top-shelf training in the art of teaching learners so they live out the biblical truths they learn each week…it’s not about giving learners an “information dump” each week…it’s about helping them interact with the biblical text in ways that cause their lives to be changed in very practical ways.
Training for every age group will take place in Phoenix, AZ (March 24), Louisville, KY (April 28), Raytown, MO (August 25), and Atlanta, GA (Sept. 22). LifeWay has made these events affordable for people from all types of churches by offering the training at just $29 per person.
