Noted Christian education professor and theorist Robert W. Pazmino shares the theological essentials to guide faithful educational thought and practices in the third millennium. He explores a prepositional theology that deepens the relationships between God and us through our teaching and learning together with spiritual wisdom. ""Here is a book that can be read for many purposes: as a substantial review of the calling of education in the mission of the church, as a challenging text on the theological foundations of Christian education, and as a stretching exercise for those who are serious about the educational and missional aspects of ministry."" --Ted Ward, Michigan State University and Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, emeritus ""A refreshing and wise look at the teaching ministry of the church. Pazmino has done well at grounding his reflection in a winsome and irenic historic orthodoxy."" --Jim Wilhoit, Wheaton College ""God Our Teacher explores the important roles of the Trinity in teaching ministries. Pazmino serves the reader well in his call for balancing unity and diversity and engaging the world in a holistic ministry of teaching."" --Cathy Stonehouse, Asbury Theological Seminary ""This book presents a balanced view that is continually framed by biblical boundaries and demonstrates Pazmino's encyclopedic grasp of the resources that have stimulated his thinking."" --Julie Gorman, Fuller Theological Seminary ""God Our Teacher is a carefully crafted, robust, and theologically grounded vision for Christian education. A worthwhile read for anyone committed to the teaching ministry of the church."" --Robert Drovdahl, Seattle Pacific University ""God Our Teacher is different from typical books on teaching and learning in that it begins with Scripture and presents a theologically informed perspective for Christian education."" --Dennis E. Williams, Southern Baptist Theological Seminary ""No contemporary educator more creatively develops teaching metaphors or is better able to design theologically strong models for Christian education than Robert Pazmino."" --Marlene LeFever, author of Creative Teaching Methods and Learning Styles Robert W. Pazmino is Valeria Stone Professor of Christian Education at Andover Newton Theological School in Newton Centre, Massachusetts, where he has taught since 1986. He has also taught at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary and other theological schools across the United States. He is the author of several books, including Foundational Issues in Christian Education (2008), So What Makes Our Teaching Christian? (2008), Doing Theological Research (2009), and A Boy Grows in Brooklyn (2014). He serves as a national consultant for the Wabash Center for Teaching and Learning in Theology and Religion.

Gospel Centered Kids Ministry

The story of Jesus interacting with the Emmaus disciples after his resurrection provides an outline for what a gospel-centered kids ministry looks like: gospel-centered teaching that points to Jesus in every session, gospel-centered transformation that positions the gospel to change a child's heart and then his or her behavior, and gospel-centered mission where kids join in on the big story of Jesus that continues to unfold.

Seven out of ten kids will walk away from church after they turn eighteen. About five will return when they have families of their own. But two will never return. Clearly, something isn't connecting with our kids. As kids ministry leaders, we need to take a hard look at what we are missing in our kids ministries and provide kids the one thing that will satisfy them and keep them connected to the church--the gospel.

Gospel-Centered Kids Ministry also addresses how to communicate with and encourage gospel-centered leaders and parents as part of your ministry.

In a candid, relevant approach, Great Love discusses ways that the world has distorted what God intended for intimacy and pleasure within the boundary of marriage. Because our culture is saturated with a devastating sexual immorality, Satan leads teenagers to experience sex as an ever-increasing craving for an ever-decreasing satisfaction. But God has a better plan!

    Praise for the first edition

    "Based on solid research and years of insightful observation, Hurt offers a deep and penetrating look into the contemporary adolescent experience that will serve us well as we work to have a prophetic, preventive, and redemptive influence on the world of today's youth culture."--Walt Mueller, Center for Parent/Youth Understanding

    "A daring yet hopeful glance into the underworld of teen promiscuity, self-mutilation, and suicide. . . . A groundbreaking resource for parents, youth ministers, and counselors."--ForeWord

    "Clark's classic book [is] highly recommended by youth workers and educators who write about teenage stress. It is foundational reading that provides valuable insight into the hurting hearts of young people."--YouthWorker Journal

    "Clark has been stepping inside the world of teenagers for many years. This book is a unique invitation for us to join him in their world. When we finish this journey, we will care more about kids and understand who they are and the challenges they face."--Denny Rydberg, Young Life

    "Drawing together research from many others along with his fresh exploration into the world beneath, Clark paints a compelling picture of adolescent life. . . . This book is a must-read for anyone who has any contact with adolescents."--Journal of Youth Ministry
