There is a great need today for effective and life-transforming biblical instruction in our churches and Christian schools. In order to meet this need, we must focus more on developing instructional units or courses that are geared toward the needs and contexts of our learners. Applying the principles of instructional design will help you in this pursuit as you learn how to build learning profiles, perform needs assessments, shape educational goals and objectives, determine the scope and sequence of instruction, select teaching strategies, and craft assessments.
Whether you are a pastor, small-group leader, Sunday school teacher, or Christian school Bible teacher, Designing Effective Biblical Instruction will help you engage the steps of instructional design and apply them to your specific ministry context. You will be challenged to refine your skills in these areas and become a more dynamic Christian educator.
