Do You Know What’s in Your Curriculum?

Curriculum //

Sunday School should assist in making disciples. When leaders identify Biblical aims for church education, they have criteria for judging a curriculum’s content. But first they must evaluate their own Sunday School curriculum. The pastor should lead in this evaluation and should make sure his church has curriculum that helps make disciples.

Regular Baptist Press understands a church’s need for disciple-making Sunday School curriculum. The curriculum developers have purposefully built RBP curriculum around seven aspects of discipleship. In fact, both the primary and the junior curriculums spend one full quarter on each discipleship aspect, with an eighth quarter focusing on prayer and worship. The entire RBP Sunday School curriculum line, from nursery to adult, has the overarching goal of making disciples. A church that chooses RBP curriculum can be confident that the curriculum will contribute to their endeavor to carry out the Great Commission.

RBP’s curriculum could become a model for other discipleship ministries in your church. Your church’s other discipleship endeavors should reflect the seven aspects of discipleship covered in RBP curriculum. In this sense, RBP’s curriculum becomes a valuable tool for evaluating and planning all your church’s discipleship ministries.
