Grow Your Discipleship. Increase Your Influence.
This free LITE version will introduce you & your teachers to the 9 central truths that encompass how to implement Biblical discipleship day-by-day in each aspect of your school.
In Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus commands His disciples to "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you."
The command is clear - to go out and make disciples or followers of Jesus Christ. To tell them the truth and teach them how to follow Him.
As teachers and administrators in Christian schools, we have an amazing privilege - and responsibility - to do just that.
What are the Central Truths?
Discipline: Discipline issues are great opportunities for discipleship.
Interactions: The rapport we build opens doors for discipleship.
Spiritual Walk: The only way to make a real impact is to be led by the Spirit.
Classroom Management: Without order, little learning or discipleship can take place.
Integrity: Students learn more by what we DO than what we SAY.
Partnership: God has given parents the primary responsibility for their children’s discipleship; we are partners with them in this process.
Lessons: Leaders who think Biblically can change the world (and we can teach them how to do just that).
Energy: If you want to be effective, you must take time to sharpen the saw.
Synergy: When we work together, we make a bigger impact in our students’ lives.
I always wanted to be teacher, but a few months in, I realized teaching was a whole lot harder than I thought it would be. Too many of my students just weren’t listening to me; many were outright belligerent. My confidence plummeted, and as much as I hated to admit it, I wasn’t enjoying teaching. Instead, I felt like a failure in my own classroom.
But God wasn’t done with me. Through sound advice, a bit of trial and error, and much prayer, I gradually learned to keep my students’ attention, and I started to believe I could actually do this.
As I stopped living in fear of the next problem, I began to look forward to teaching. And while I loved those ah-ha moments when my students finally got how to solve equations, the truest joy came from watching God change lives through me.
No matter what challenges you’re facing, God wants to use you in your classroom. You’re in the right place. Let’s dive in.
