Interviews are used extensively in our society, from the company looking to hire a new employee, to the talk show host looking to educate his audience on a specific topic, to the comedian on the late show seeking to draw an audience with a big-name personality and laughs.

With some advance planning, an interview as part of your lesson could add a unique dynamic. In fact, you might be able to find suitable candidates within your congregation. Or, you could use this as an opportunity for outreach. For example, you could interview a Christian financial counselor when teaching a lesson on money (Lesson 5). You could ask the neighborhood watch captain to speak to your class about how the church can be a positive influence in its community (Lesson 12). Or, consider inviting your mayor, a councilman, or state representative for lessons on Christians and the government (Lesson 13).
