Many teachers were installed into the classroom out of desperate need. They received no training and have never felt confident in their teaching. This program of study certifies the teacher with the foundations of teaching that inspires confidence and excellence in teaching.
"I love to teach, but feel I need to understand more about teaching." This is the cry of many Christian Educators. This program of study is just what you need.

A good teacher doesn't necessarily make a good Director. Children's Pastor's and Directors are usually home-grown with no training. Change the trend in your church to a build a better program.
Every pastor wants a well organized Christian Education Program that understands the needs of every member in the church body from cradle roll to seniors. Well-trained Directors is the key.

Spiritual signs will follow every believer: "they will cast out devils in the name of Jesus; speak with new tongues; lay hands on the sick and see them recover" (Mark 16:15 - 18).

And yet... the seven sons of Sceva were mauled because they did not understand what they were doing. (Acts 19:11 - 20). Take time to understand what Scripture says about casting out devils and deliverance.
