The Sunday school teacher's responsibility does not begin and end with the classroom Sunday morning!
As a Sunday school teacher, there are various best practices you should follow to have the maximum positive spiritual impact on your class. One such weekly habit is to follow up on visitors and absentees.
Jesus' earthly ministry shows us by example that while one may preach to multitudes, investment must be made in just a few in order to develop disciples. Your pastor's effectiveness will be multiplied if you as Sunday school teacher help him by "pastoring" your class. One key element of this ministry is follow-up.
- Ask your class secretary to ask all newcomers to your class for contact information.
- Check with the secretary afterward to determine which guests and absentees need to be
- Call/text/email, visit, or mail a card within 24 hours.
