Following high school, a Bachelor of Science degree was received from Piedmont College, Demorest, GA plus a Georgia Teacher's Professional Certificate. Then came the Army Security Agency and three years later came employment with the National Security Agency, Washington, DC. Meeting Edith Campen from North Carolina led to marriage, February 1, 1957. A year after marriage, God called me to the ministry. Graduating from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ft. Worth, TX with a Bachelor of Divinity (updated to Masters of Divinity) and Masters in Religious Education (updated to Masters of Arts), God directed me to serve Him. For some 50 years, it was a pleasure to serve God and people in churches and classrooms as Minister of Youth, Minister of Education, Minister of Education/Administration, and Minister of Pastoral Care. It was a joy to teach this Old Testament Bible Survey Course to ninth grade students at Cypress Community Christian School, Houston, TX.

Are you a bridge builder? Communicating the Scriptures is much like building a bridge. However, instead of ravines or rivers, the teacher must span both cultural boundaries and great gulfs of time between the present and the past of Moses, David, Jesus, and Paul. This bridge must reach even further. The student must be able to cross both into the past and into his own future. God's Word is "living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword" (Hebrews 4:12). It is contemporary, relevant. But it is the teacher who has the task of helping the student to see its vast treasures. This is no easy task, but it can be done through creative Bible teaching. Together, Richards and Bredfeldt have written a book on bridge-building that reveals the following five-step process by which Christian educators can construct a bridge across time, geography, and culture. Step I: "Studying the Bible" Develop an understanding of the nature, role, study, and interpretation of the Bible. Get the help you need in preparing biblically accurate lesson plans. Step II: "Focusing the Message" Learn how to teach for student learning. Be guided in the process of translating learning theory into lesson preparation. Step III: "Structuring the Lesson" Develop a lesson plan using the HOOK, BOOK, LOOK, TOOK structure. Step IV: "Teaching the Class" Learn about the five key principles of teacher effectiveness. Discover how these principles can lead to a more dynamic and satisfying teaching experience within various age groups. Step V: "Evaluating the Results" Evaluate your own effectiveness by assessing the outcome of your teaching.

Practical Strategies for Classroom Instruction
Author: Mark Roncace,Patrick Gray
Publisher: Society of Biblical Lit
While books on pedagogy in a theoretical mode have proliferated in recent years, there have been few that offer practical, specific ideas for teaching particular biblical texts. To address this need, Teaching the Bible, a collection of ideas and activities written by dozens of innovative college and seminary professors, outlines effective classroom strategies—with a focus on active learning—for the new teacher and veteran professor alike. It includes everything from ways to incorporate film, literature, art, and music to classroom writing assignments and exercises for groups and individuals. The book assumes an academic approach to the Bible but represents a wide range of methodological, theological, and ideological perspectives. This volume is an indispensable resource for anyone who teaches classes on the Bible.

The Effective Four
Author: Danny R. Bowen
"Why another book on teaching? Frankly because, despite all the valuable resources available to teachers, much teaching in the church remains anemic. Many of those considered the “best of the best” still teach Bible facts rather than the Bible. Even many of those who teach straight from the biblical text fail to show their learners how the Bible applies to daily life. At the other extreme, some who do teach application jump right to personal application without regard for the truth of the passage written, as it were, to an audience far removed from us in time, language, geography, and culture.The simple approach in this book will help you see profound change in those you teach. Rather than teaching fun facts, you can learn to teach transforming truth from the Bible. Written for teachers in the church, the method presented can be learned quickly and then mastered over a lifetime of teaching. The author, Danny R. Bowen, is a veteran Bible teacher who returned to school to learn to teach more effectively and to equip other teachers in the church for effective ministry. His passion for solid teaching is evident throughout this short book. The content is gleaned from studies and research for a Master of Divinity and a Ph.D. The approach is based on theory and practice. But, understanding and applying the method taught requires only a heart for being used by God to equip the church for ministry (Ephesians 4:11-16). The layout of the book follows the method, which is based on helping learners answer the effective four questions."--Amazon.com.

Dynamic Research on Finding a Place of Wholeness

Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
What factors contribute to active Christians in ministry leaving their church and becoming exiting statistics? Every year dedicated Christian people leave churches because of spiritual abuse. The stories of people who left their home church because of a negative and hurtful experience paint a picture of a widespread occurrence which beckons consideration by church leaders and church congregants alike. Spiritual abuse, the misuse of spiritual authority to maltreat followers in the Christian Church, is a complex issue. This book shows how people processed their grief after experiencing spiritual abuse in their local church and how they rediscovered spiritual harmony. Their spiritual journey shows how one may grow through this devastating experience. This book offers a thoughtful look at the topic of spiritual recovery from clergy abuse through the eyes of those who have experienced it. It invites church leaders to consider this very real dysfunction in the Church today and aims to demonstrate a path forward to greater freedom in Christ after a season of disillusionment with church leadership.
