My peers (Mid South Discipleship Group) and I updated a great resource by Kiely Young. The book is entitled A Coach’s Guide to Sunday School. We wrote the book for the pastor and Sunday School director, and you can download a PDF version of A Coach’s Guide.
No Sunday School operates well for very long without good coaching. Sunday School can be a great tool for helping the church carry out her God-given vision. This book is written to make Sunday School coaching practical and effective, and you will want to get a copy of A Coach’s Guide for your pastor and director.
To give you a quick overview, here are the chapters of the 43-page book:
- Preface: What do you want your Sunday School to do?
- 1: Vision (by Sean Keith)
- 2: The Team (by Daniel Edmonds)
- 3: Discovering and Enlisting Workers (by Wayne Etheridge)
- 4: Coaching Teachers (by David Bond)
- 5: Outreach (by Kiely Young)
- 6: Inreach (by Jeff Ingram)
- 7: Planning (by Darryl Wilson)
- 8: New Groups (by Bob Mayfield)
- 9: Getting Started (by Tim Smith).

I am planning Sunday School Coach training events here in Kentucky in 2019. Interested in hosting? I want to be in every association across the state. Contact me to set up an event or to order low-cost printed copies of A Coach’s Guide by making your request in Comments.
