Sunday school job description common to all ministry positions

Sunday school job description

Common to all Sunday school job descriptions is that each leader needs to be a mature, growing Christians who have been members of the church and Sunday school for an extended period of time. Our desire is for each person to serve in a ministry position for which he or she has been gifted and to which there is a sense of God’s calling. If you have been asked to lead in a particular area, prayerfully considered the position along with your giftedness for it.

All leadership must regularly attend a Sunday school class and the worship service and co-operate wholeheartedly in the plans and activities of the church (note: some leadership positions may prevent individuals from regularly attending Sunday school). (1 Corinthians 3:9)

Each leader needs to faithfully fulfill the responsibilities listed in their Sunday school job description. If your life circumstances change thereby preventing you from fulfilling your responsibilities for an extended amount of time, please inform your Department Director so they can find a substitute or replacement.

Sunday school job description Tip: It is better to turn down a ministry opportunity than accept it and not do it.

Each leader must work to create an atmosphere of peace and unity. As differences or issues arise within the Sunday school class, we ask you to solve these issues in a biblical, loving and unifying manner.
