In my last post on my study through Colossians (“Colossians – Teaching Schedule“), I listed the schedule that I plan to use to teach through the book of Colossians. We’re still planning to read through the entire book of Colossians each Sunday, and I’m still planning to stick to that schedule as we examine a particular passage within Colossians each Sunday.
But, I’ve decided to add something to my teaching schedule. Or, to be more accurate, I’ve decided to add someone to my teaching schedule.
I’ve invited someone to “co-teach” with me each week. Now, that may seem strange to you, since I primarily teach through discussion and dialogue, so anyone will be able to comment or “co-teach.” But, I’ve decided to specifically ask someone to prepare a 5-10 minute lesson based on one concept or one part of each week’s passage.
Five people have agreed to co-teach with me. Two of them are in their twenties and the other three are teenagers. I’ve offered to help them study and prepare their lesson. (Of course, they’re not required to take me up on that offer.) I’m hoping this will give them an opportunity to learn more about studying Scripture and presenting a lesson to the church.
What feedback would you have on this plan?
