Factors Such as 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 staff who are properly placed in their ministries, 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 of Your Christian Education Ministry:
Choose curriculum that fits your plans.
Evaluate your facilities for their best and most efficient use.
Propose a budget to match your priorities and needs.
Develop policies to help promote the good of all.
Coordinate a master calendar to avert conflicts.
