For review, the first and most important irreducible minimum of an evangelistic Sunday School is enrolling and inviting lost people to Sunday School. The second is proactive members. Members who are inviting their lost friends, family, associates and neighbors and the entire class practicing relationship evangelism by welcome these lost and unchurched friends to Christ. The final irreducible minimum of an evangelistic Sunday School is evangelistic Teachers. In this blog, I am going to share two characteristics of evangelistic teachers.
Evangelistic Teachers CONNECT with his/her class. They make it a priority to find out who is in their class and make every attempt to visit with each class member in their home or at a restaurant. They will also connect class members with unconnected visitors to his class. Teacher, set as your goal to visit every member and every prospect of your class within the first month of the new Sunday School year. If that is physically impossible because there are too many, then you may have a class that is too large. It is not a point of pride to have a large class if that class is not being cared for and people are falling through the cracks.
Evangelistic teachers APPLY the word of God to the lives of her class. They are able to do that because they have met with every member and every prospect and they know the overall issues that are facing the members of their group. As they study they are not only thinking about correctly handling the Word of God but correctly impacting the lives of those she loves.
Your class can be an evangelistic Sunday School class, but all three elements are needed: Lost people, proactive members, and evangelistic teachers. In the next blog, I will share three more characteristics of evangelistic teachers.
