Teacher Resources

The Adult Discipleship Ministry Area seeks to equip Columbia's IG teachers with the tools needed to help nurture the faith of the IG participants.  To this end, our ministry area offers periodic teacher meeting and trainings.  Additionally, we have identified some readings that give IG teachers a deeper understanding of the purpose and nature of adult discipleship, as well as ways to improve practical teaching skills.

Below are some highly recommended readings: 

  1. Tye, Karen.  Basics of Christian Education.  Chalice Press, 2000. 
  2. Anthony, Michael.  Introducing Christian Education:  Foundations for the Twenty-first Century.   Grand Rapids, Mich.:  Baker Academic, 2001. 
  3.  Richards, Larry and Gary Bredfeldt.  Creative Bible Teaching.  Chicago, Ill.:  Moody Press, 1998.

Please feel free to review a complete listed of recommended readings.
