Comments Off on How are Your Sheep?

How would you like to move beyond the strict definition of a “teacher” (“one who gives instruction and knowledge”) to the “pastor-teacher” referenced in the book of Ephesians (“a ‘shepherd’ nurturing a ‘flock’”)? What might happen if you moved beyond a “teacher-student” relationship to a “shepherd-sheep” relationship? What are you doing about the “straying and other challenging sheep” you are called to teach? What is a shepherd’s “classroom”? What is a shepherd’s “teaching time”? Do you hear your students? Isn’t that bleating?

Comments Off on Teaching Wouldn’t be so Hard if it Wasn’t for the Students

You all have some or all of them in your group. At times, if you were honest about it, you would rather they not show up or even worse, you’d like to “nuke” them! But they are part of your group and God has called you to teach them, shepherd them, even love them! You know who they are. I call them the students brought to you by the letter “D”: “The Distracted”, “The Detour”, “The Dominator” and “The Destroyer”. Come learn general and specific strategies for dealing with each.

Comments Off on Creative Teaching

When was the last time you were bored with a teacher’s presentation of the Word of God? Notice I said “when” not “Have you ever been”. We all can recall that “worst student nightmare”. Should not the teaching be that of a “Master Teacher”? Should not the teaching of the Word of God be creative, like God the Father, the teacher of the nation Israel and choice saints, who “In the beginning…created…”? Should not the teaching of the Word of God be creative like Jesus, “the Word who became flesh”, the teacher of disciples, religious leaders and the multitude? Come learn “The Amato Dozen”, creative tools to be used for the glory of God in presenting a Bible Study.

Comments Off on Youth Sports, A Microcosm Life

Having played (or attempted to play) every sport imaginable before his body went bad on him and then having coached his son and daughter and other kids in youth baseball, youth softball and youth basketball for many years, Brent has learned and taught his kids many lessons of life from the world of sports, which is a true microcosm of life. Whether it be affirming the true cliché, “It’s not whether you win or lose but how you play the game.”, experiencing that youth sports like life sometimes isn’t fair or practicing strategies to deal with “youth sports parents” (the only thing bad about youth sports), Brent has much to share.
