How would you like to host a training meeting in you Association with
only $100 honorarium fees. Here is how one Association did it and you can too.
I recently spoke in the Pee Dee Baptist Association near Rockingham, NC. The
D.O.M. is David Benton. David charged each participant $10 to attend.
(He told me privately that the teacher's church actually paid this in
most cases.) David did such a good job of promotion that the event was
close to break-even for the Association.
I thought, "Why doesn't every Association do this?" Then I thought, "Why
don't I do this?"
I would like to offer a training conference to your Association on the
- Must be sponsored by an Association
- Association pays expenses plus $100. If we are in the area, travel is $200
for me and $200 for Missy if you want her to do children and
preschool training. If we are not in the area, it is out-right
expenses. Normally one night hotel; sometimes two. It is only $100
for Missy and me.
- Association charges $10 per person to attend the conference.
This becomes our honorarium.
- Association provides us with email addresses of pastors and Sunday
School directors in the area so that we can promote from our end as
well. (If we could get the email address of the Associations around
you, all the better.)
I am making this offer on a trial basis. Take advantage now while the

Here is a list of conferences that are available:
You Can Double Your Class in Two Years or Less. My most popular
seminar—this is the one that launched a full-time career in training
Sunday School teachers 12 years ago. I can reduce it to a formula: You
can double your class every two years or less by inviting every member
and every prospect to every fellowship every month.
Disciplemaking Teachers. The problem in many churches is not that we
cannot figure out how to double a class every two years or less, the
problem is, we don’t want to. The reason? We have not made true
disciples. This seminar explores what is a disciple and how teachers can
make disciples through the Sunday School.
One Magnificent Obsession. This motivational seminar focuses on the
“Why?” of doubling groups. I offer 10 compelling reasons to want to
double your group.
Good Questions Have Groups Talking. I have written more Sunday
School lessons than anyone living or dead. I write 4 new lessons a week
(corresponding with Lifeway’s series and the International Standard
Series) and have done so for years. This seminar shares hidden secrets
on how to teach using the tried and true method of asking good
questions. A dozen different kinds of questions are explored.
Give Friday Nights to Jesus.
This seminar teaches the hospitality ministry discussed in the
Double Your Class Seminar without the emphasis on dividing. If you
have a lot of people squeamish about numbers, this may be the seminar
Marks of I.N.C.R.E.D.I.B.L.E. Teachers. Incredible teachers inspire
hearts; they don't just fill heads. That is point #1 of this popular
seminar on the craft of teaching. It explores how to use technology to
find material that moves hearts. One point of the ten deals with the
dream of doubling groups.
Make Your Group Grow. This is my newest seminar and book. It is
based on a research project of 1000 Sunday School teachers. The purpose
of the research was to discover if the things I teach could be validated
by hard research. I discovered I was mostly right! The message of this
seminar is similar to Double Your
Class but the presentation is much more research-based.
