Inspired by an expressed need of Christian education leaders, Fostering Faith reaches far beyond the Sunday school hour or Wednesday evening Bible study. It proposes a shift from education as “schooling” with a goal to increase the learners’ knowledge, to a holistic model of education as transformation, which equips and empowers Christian disciples for ministry. Valuable for clergy, lay leaders, and education ministry members, Fostering Faith seeks to strengthen the vital role teachers play in the church and in the world as learners and disciples themselves.

Key features:
•Highlights the notion that answers are less the goal of education than discerning and exploring the questions.
•Presents dual perspectives of teaching—as formal ministry in the church and as an organic process as congregations live out their mission.
•Contains practical appendices with adaptable resources for Christian education committees and teachers.

“These three authors have combined their tremendous wealth of knowledge and passion for teaching to remind us all that Christian education is about more than Sunday school; it is about the transformational work of God in our lives. Perfect for pastors, education committees or teams, and any person of faith concerned with the education of God’s people, this work beautifully weaves the very practical with the deeply theological. The result is a book that easily inspires all to think again about faith formation and empower folks to strengthen the foundation of the church s educational work. ” --Rev. Laurie Taylor Weicher, Pastor for Education and Discipleship at Wayne Presbyterian Church“With literary creativity, simplicity and profoundness, the authors of this practical resource have provided fresh insights to familiar training in educational ministry. Emerging from the stance of a passion for teaching, the book is a hands-on tool and reference for persons seeking to invite new life into and re-energize their church through teaching and learning. This is a "must read" for pastors, Christian Education leadership teams, teachers and others who take seriously the faith formation of God's people. ” --Mary Young, Assistant Professor of Christian Education & Director of the Master of Arts in Christian Education, Virginia Union University“Congregations engage in teaching to deepen the faith and ministry of the faithful. Teaching invites us into God’s presence and into God’s dream for the communities in which we live. Thanks, in fact, abundant thanks, to Denise Janssen, Sallie Verner, and Diane Janssen Hemmen for their gift to the church. If you are an educator, a pastor, or a teacher and want to know how to improve your teaching ministry, this is the book for you. It offers directions for why we teach. It provides concrete resources to assist us in organizing teaching. Indeed, it is the ONE book you need to enhance the faithfulness of your teaching ministry. An amazingly useful book!” --Jack Seymour, Professor of Religious Education, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, and Editor, RELIGIOUS EDUCATION“With literary creativity, simplicity and profoundness, the authors of this practical resource have provided fresh insights to familiar training in educational ministry.

  • By M. Lehmann on November 20, 2014

    I purchased this book thinking it would be more about tips and techniques for the Christian educator doing the teaching. The book is more of an outline of how to put together and grow a Christian Education program in your local church. It does an amazing job looking at the big picture of things: how to get people involved, how to encourage those already active, rewarding volunteers, chosing programming, and so on. It wasn't quite what I was looking for when I ordered it, but it has so much great information about bettering the education side of things in your church that I really enjoyed reading it. It really is a must have for anyone at the head of their church education program!
