Teacher's Corner

Not all teachers are preachers, but every preacher is a teacher.  With that in mind, here are a few valuable suggestions for anyone who teaches God's Word.

  1. Teach people, not lessons (it's people we're called to serve)
  2. Teach more by teaching less (don't cover material, uncover the main point)
  3. Teach using a plan (fail to plan, plan to fail)
  4. Teach for life change (this is the goal)
  5. Teach only after you've gained attention (don't assume they're with you)
  6. Teach what the Bible teaches (context is king)
  7. Teach in ways appropriate to your age group (know your audience)
  8. Teach using relevant issues (The Bible speaks to our times)
  9. Teach heart to heart (share your passion)
  10. Teach with a humble heart (keep growing and learning)
