Q & A - David Francis

Who will benefit most from watching the webcast?
Primarily for Pastors, Ministers of Education, Sunday School Directors, Adult Sunday School Teachers, and Associational Leaders.
There are crossover principles such “expect every person to say yes” and “expect new people to attend” that have application for Preschool, Children, and Students.

Suggested ideas for promotion:
1. Have a teachers meeting or training event at your church.

2. An individual Adult Sunday School Teacher could have their class leadership over to their house or meet at the church. (Maybe the church offers child care and the individual class meets in their classroom.)
3. Have an Associational Sunday School Training Event.

NEEDED: host place with fast internet service (preferably not wireless since it is slower); a data projector to project the webcast from a computer hooked to the internet; personal invitations and publicity; and refreshments (after all, these are Baptists)
OPTIONAL: copies of David Francis' book,
Great Expectations: Planting Seeds for Sunday School Growth
OPTIONAL: give away some Sunday School resources as door prizes
