What do you Expect of your Teachers?

What is a Sunday School teacher’s job exactly?  A Children’s Church worker’s exact responsibility?  Wouldn’t it be great to have a resource that helped you to define the Children’s Ministry Team roles?  Sure, we all know we’re supposed to have these things on hand.  Available to give out the moment a potential volunteer steps in our general direction.  Written expectations help to set the stage for success.  They give potential volunteers an idea of what the job encompasses.   They help Sunday School teachers (or children’s church workers) understand their responsibility.  Prewritten expectations also provide a platform for accountability.  But, of course, you already knew all that.  You just don’t have the time (or the energy!) to draft one of these fabulous documents up because you’re very busy with other pressing matters (like reading this blog).  So, it’s your lucky day!  I have unearthed just such a document (and it’s a pretty good one too!).   First_Baptist_Church-Children’s_Ministry Guidelines– a great resource for those trying to squeeze a little more structure into the ministry.
