Sara Covin Juengst, a Columbia ...
Sara Covin Juengst, a Columbia Theological Seminary graduate and a former member of the seminary's faculty and staff, received the 2008 Award for Excellence in Theological Education from the Committee on Theological Education for the Presbyterian Church (USA).
She was recognized at the 218th General Assembly.
In addition to serving on the Columbia Seminary staff, she has been a church educator, campus minister, missionary in Zaire, and mission board staff member.
She has published six books and a PW Bible Study.
She is now the temporary supply pastor at Lincolnton Presbyterian Church in Georgia and resides in McCormick.
I have just added to the collection a book called Equipping the Saints: Teacher Training in the Church by Sara Covin Juengst (Westminster John Knox Press).It is a nine-month teacher-training course that covers biblical background, basic Christian beliefs, and good teaching techniques.Each segment contains thirteen sessions of interactive study, with lesson plans for each session.You could use it to establish a "teaching academy" in your congregation, or you could leave out the teaching skills section and use it for an "adult confirmation" program.The doctrinal section feels a little stiff to me, but is solidly within traditional reformed theology.Juengst is a Presbyterian minister and Christian educator who was formerly the director of continuing education for Columbia Theological Seminary. Most of the resources recommended in Juengst's book are in our collection.One of these just recently acquired is the Revised Bible Teacher Kit, published by Abingdon Press, which contains Bible background articles, a glossary, a timeline, various charts and maps, and a video with four segments: Segment I (12 minutes) Northern Palestine, Segment II (14 minutes) Southern Palestine, Segment III (15 minutes) Places Paul Visited, Segment IV (11 minutes) Life in Palestine.Borrow the kit to preview it; I bet you decide to purchase a copy for your church.Juengst also recommends the four-session video series produced by Gateway Films Discovering the Bible, which I have also highly recommended in this column, but which no one seems to borrow.
