EXPECTATIONS FOR SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHERS

The Jersey Baptist Church
1994-95

WHAT YOUR CHURCH EXPECTS OF YOU AS A SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER:

JOY
See your place of service as an opportunity for joyful service to our
Lord--do your best in dependence on His Spirit. Be a positive,
enthusiastic, excited supporter of your church. Strive to teach
from the overflow of what God is doing in your life.

FAITHFULNESS
Be in your place of service each week during your entire term of
service, arriving at least ten minutes early (fifteen for children
and preschool workers).
In case of absence, notify your division or department
director as early as possible. Use the curriculum materials
provided by the church; follow the scripture passage and central
truth, but feel free to modify the teaching aim and lesson plans to
best meet your pupils' needs.

MINISTRY
Develop personal relationships with your pupils; learn their needs
and address those needs in your teaching. Take active
responsibility for attendance in your class. Work closely with your
class outreach leader and deacon in involving and supporting
the entire class in doing outreach and ministry.

GROWTH
Maintain a quality personal devotional time. Plan to participate in training
opportunities. Prepare diligently each week for the class session,
and try new teaching methods occasionally. Set personal goals to
improve your teaching, visitation, and witnessing skills.

WHAT YOU AS A SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER SHOULD EXPECT OF YOUR CHURCH:

SUPPORT
Prayer support from our congregation, the Sunday School team, and
our staff. Encouragement and recognition as you fulfill your important task
from your Sunday School leadership. Help in solving problems and
ministering to your pupils.

COMMUNICATION
Information through Bible Teaching News, teachers'
meetings, and special mailings to keep you informed as a church
leader.

FELLOWSHIP
Encouragement of workers in non-adult divisions by in-service
membership in an adult class of your choice. Fellowship with other
Sunday School team members.

TRAINING
Opportunities for improving your Bible teaching skills through a
variety of self-study and group settings, through the church and
denomination.

RESOURCES
Provision of adequate curriculum materials, teaching resources, supplies, and equipment.
