Item description for Your Calling as a Teacher (Your Calling As...) by Karen Tye...

Overview
To many, teaching is an awesome and daunting task. Being asked to help shape and form children, youth, and adults in their Christian identity can be intimidating, and many teachers wonder if they are up to the challenge. Like people of faith of old, they can certainly think of all the excuses why they can't do it: I'm too young (Jeremiah), I'm not good enough (Isaiah), I can't stand up in front of a group and talk (Moses), I've got too many other things to do (Martha). This book is written to help you answer the "now what?" when you've offered to become a teacher. It is designed to help you see and understand your teaching as a calling, a ministry, and not just a job you are doing for the church. Further, it seeks to reflect with you on what it means to be a teacher and perhaps dispel some of the myths and misperceptions people have about teachers and teaching. Next, it provides information regarding some of the knowledge, skills, and tools that can help teachers faithfully carry out their ministry. And finally, it seeks to celebrate those in our churches who are called to teach. Your Calling as a Teacher is designed for those who teach in various capacities within the community of faith. Whether you are a Sunday school teacher, a nursery volunteer, a youth group advisor, the leader of an adult Bible study group, a vacation Bible school volunteer, or the pastor, you are a teacher. And the call you have heard is a vital one. It is a call to help equip the saints for ministry and to build up the body of Christ. It is an absolutely essential ministry of the church.
