Sunday School is usually the largest ministry in an Arkansas Baptist church. Sunday School is basically a ministry of small groups. The Sunday School usually divides people, based on their age or their “stage in life”, into small groups. The mission of Sunday School is to reach unchurched people. The foundation of Sunday School is relationships. The strength of Sunday School is ministry. The heart of Sunday School is Bible study. The Evangelism and Church Growth Team believes that Sunday School should be and could be a healthy, growing ministry in your church. We are here to help you with Sunday School through training, resources, and consulting. For more information on Sunday School, choose one of our pages that focuses on a specific age-group or function.

Pastors/Sunday School Directors

The pastor and the director of the Sunday School are two of the most influential growth agents in the Sunday School ministry. The pastor and director are the visible “face” of the Sunday School. That means they are the most effective at promoting Sunday School to the church.  They are in the best position to give leadership to high attendance campaigns, starting new classes, and choosing curriculum. Their passion for evangelism and ministry can easily be communicated to church leaders. God has placed you in an important role for the kingdom; the Evangelism & Church Growth Team wants to be your primary partner in making a difference in your community through the Sunday School.

Children's Sunday School

Children’s Sunday School provides foundational teaching and learning experiences for first-through-sixth-graders (preteens).  As churches use age-appropriate curriculum materials, teaching methods, and environments, they are able to reach and minister to children and families. Some of the important issues include learning styles, safety and security for children, enlistment of volunteers, grouping children according to grade levels, and talking to children about conversion.
