This post is a teaching schedule from 2016. This completes the yearly teaching series of Apostolic Tabernacle from 2014 to 2019. I am catching up on old posts.
Do you know what you are teaching next Sunday Morning or next Wednesday Night? Do you know what you taught a year ago during your teaching time? We tend to teach and preach out of our niche’ comfort zones. If we are not careful we can preach the same general themes over and over. While I understand some repetition is good, the Bible is a big inspired book with many themes and subthemes. By using a teaching calendar you can be much more intentional with what you are teaching and you can more effectively reach the varied backgrounds of the people in your congregation.
Along with being a full-time evangelist, I also work as the Executive Pastor at Apostolic Faith Tabernacle alongside Pastor David McCool. Below is our 2016 theme – Deeper – that Pastor McCool felt drawn to for this year. I created the framework for this series along with Bro. McCool’s guidance. This schedule is for the 10:00am Adult Bible Class. Feel free to use the rhythm and flow of this teaching calendar to meet the needs of your own church.
