As a Christian educator, have you considered that you probably have more daily ministry opportunities than your pastor? You shape the next generation in countless ways through your conduct, character, and conversation—so how can you most effectively share this gift that God has given you?
Bringing Christ to the Classroom equips you to be an even more effective educator and follower of Christ through investigating scripture, illuminating what Jesus did as the master teacher, and integrating your discoveries into your instruction and interactions with students. Author and professor Charissa Dunn shares her own journey as a Christian educator so that others called to teach can discover what Jesus did to earn the title of the master teacher, applying what they learn to their positions as Christian educators. Bringing Christ to the Classroom can also help you connect with God’s message on a deeper level while you pray for guidance, listen to his voice, and ask him for transformation.
God provided you with the talents, abilities, and experiences required to serve as an educator, and he called you as an educator “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:15). By reading and examining the Bible in a new light, you will be thoroughly prepared for every good work, serving both your students and God in faith.
