Other Factors in Christian Education Ministry

Curriculum, Facilities, Budgets, Policies, Master Calendar Should Be in Congruence with the Big Picture

Curriculum, facilities, budget, policies, and scheduling are all an important part of a Christian Education ministry. These factors, however, should flow out of and be in congruence with other elements already determined such as:

  • your philosophy of ministry
     
  • the available and proper placement of staff, both paid or volunteer
     
  • how many levels of ministry are happening simultaneously and what is happening at each of these levels
     
  • what groups are needed to effectively meet needs
     
  • what strategies or programs you will use to accomplish your objectives
     
  • the model used within each of the programs
     
     

Once You Have a Good Handle on the Big Picture, Then You are Ready to Determine the Particulars:
