I'd like to invite your participation in a new blog http://racehorsess.wordpress.com/
If you are enjoying rapid growth in your Sunday School, I'd like to ask you to share your story. email me at [email protected]
I am in dozens of churches every year with fast-growing Sunday schools. I have never actually tracked it, but I would guess that 70% of the churches I am in are growing, many of them growing rapidly. To be sure, I am in an above-average cross section of churches. The churches that have me in are fired up about growth. I am not the first Sunday School growth trainer that they have had in, and I won't be the last.
Yet, there is this perception held by many that Sunday School is not really a vital way of reaching people today. I read a stat on this blog that said, "Only 15% of ministers regarded Sunday school as a leading concern." We come by this perception honestly.
Drop by you nearest Christian book store. Go to the pastor's book section. Read the top 10 best-selling books. Ask yourself, would you get the impression that Sunday school is a vital way of reaching people today? Sunday School, it seems, has an image problem.
I'd like to help by creating a forum where leaders of fast growing Sunday Schools can tell their stories. I'd suggest you do so with the following 5 questions:
Don't be bashful! Send me your story! I'd love to tell the world about it.
