Your Calling as a Teacher

To many, teaching is both an awesome and daunting task. Being asked to help shape and form children, youth, and adults in their Christian identity can be intimidating, and many teachers wonder if they are up to the challenge. Like people of faith of old, they can certainly think of all the excuses why they can't do it: I'm too young (Jeremiah), I'm not good enough (Isaiah), I can't stand up in front of a group and talk (Moses), I've got too many other things to do (Martha). This book is written to help you answer the "now what?" when you've offered to become a teacher. It is designed to help you see and understand your teaching as a calling, a ministry, and not just a job you are doing for the church. Further, it seeks to reflect with you on what it means to be a teacher and perhaps dispel some of the myths and misperceptions people have about teachers and teaching. Next, it provides information regarding some of the knowledge, skills, and tools that can help teachers faithfully carry out their ministry. And finally, it seeks to celebrate those in our churches who are called to teach.
