The Sunday school ministry training emphasis for 2012 - and beyond - is Missionary Sunday School by David Francis. Download ministry training conference plans for leaders of every age group.
Missionary Sunday School: One Mission. His Story. Every Person is the second book in a series that takes key principles from Lifeway's Transformational Church research initiative and offers practical suggestions on how your church's Sunday school ministry could become transformational.
The first book, Transformational Class, briefly addressed all of the Transformational Church elements and how they affect Sunday school. Missionary Sunday School takes a closer look at one element: Missionary Mentality. Author David Francis strives to answer the question "What might a Sunday School class or small group look like if it saw itself as a missionary enterprise - thinking and acting out of a missionary mindset?"
