The 5-Step Formula for Sunday School Growth is a strategy based on the writings of Arthur Flake. His work with Sunday schools in the early 1900s led to the development of this formula for building and growing a Sunday school.

  1. Know the possibilities
  2. Enlarge the organization
  3. Provide the space
  4. Enlist and train the workers
