Calling ALL Sunday School Superintendents
By Drr. George W. Waddles, President, Congress of Christian Education | February 26, 2013
A Message from the Desk of Congress President Waddles:
We greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
Many attempts have been made to evaluate our church Sunday Schools. While the official structure has thrived over the years, there has been much debate over whether we are building the church through effective Bible instruction that equips students for everyday life. We believe that strong Sunday Schools are vital in building strong churches that are built on the fundamental truths in God’s Word.
In a previous address, we declared the “Year of the Sunday School” where we focus our resources and efforts on training effective Bible teachers, administrators and superintendents so that we build our national body, by building our local church Sunday Schools. We need your help in this effort. We are asking that each church will send their superintendents and Sunday School administrators to this year’s Superintendent’s Conference. We will gather once again at the Baptist World Center in Nashville, Tennessee on March 22-23, 2013 and receive dynamic instruction that will encourage our teachers and administrators and provide them with tools and practices to build and structure an effective Church School. This year’s theme is: Be Transformed—Training Christian Educations Leaders and Teachers for the 21st Century.
My brothers and sisters I encourage each of you to stand with us and invest in the strength of your church by building your Sunday School. We live in troubling times, and must stand on the truth of God’s Word and equip our constituents to know and learn that truth. We can do this together, but it starts with YOU! Please go to the convention website for additional information: www.nationalbaptist.com.
We thank God for His divine direction in this endeavor, for the efforts of the Conference staff and we anticipate God’s blessings upon this gathering.
George W. Waddles, Sr., President
National Baptist Congress of Christian Education
