Discipleship is the goal of the teaching ministry of the church. That involves a defined process, but also we must depend on the Holy Spirit in every aspect of teaching: Bible study, development of the lesson plan, and management of learning experiences. We must invite the Holy Spirit into the entire teaching/learning context. Life transformation is the need, Christ-likeness is the goal, and the Holy Spirit is the key dynamic.
