Leading the Sunday school ministry

The church has asked you to be the Sunday school director.  Your role is to lead the staff of volunteer Sunday school teachers, department directors and other officers to do several things on a weekly basis.  The Sunday school leaders will prepare Bible study lessons for the members of their classes and lead the Sunday school sessions.  Greeter teams will welcome people to the classes, coffee and donuts may be made available.  Someone will count the number of attendees and a secretary will record the weekly attendance report.  At some point, there will be a need to order the set of curriculum materials for the next quarter or teaching cycle.  

But is there more  to your job?  Who takes care of the issues of coordination of classroom usage, fixing broken teaching equipment, ordering crayons for the children's department?  There are probably a dozen other tasks that could be mentioned.  

But in a well-organized Sunday school ministry, there will be volunteers who will be up to these tasks when enlisted, trained and mobilized.  You may need some additional resources to understand all there is to leading the Sunday school ministry.  You can do it. We are here to help you!

The links below will give some guidance as to the leadership role for the church Sunday school director as well as other key Sunday School leadership roles.
