We are excited to introduce some new and concise resources for your ministry leaders and volunteers: Truth78’s Core Training Series. We know that establishing a God-centered, Bible-saturated, Christ-exalting, Gospel-focused, Spirit-dependent classroom environment can seem like a daunting task. Each year brings new challenges in recruiting, equipping, and training ministry volunteers. Some leaders and volunteers are fully acquainted with the Truth78 curricula, having used it for many years. But some, especially those newer to our curriculum, would definitely benefit from some basic go-to help for understanding and using our curriculum.

What is the Core Training Series? It is a series of short documents that provide an overview of specific topics and classroom roles, as well as outline some practical tips for implementation in the classroom setting. In other words, these documents provide a “core” of essential knowledge and tools for using our curriculum. Many of these documents also point you to Truth78 resources that offer further training.

How should the Core Training Series be used? We suggest printing all applicable documents and passing them along to your ministry teams. The following training documents are organized into categories based on whether they are applicable to everyone, or mainly to those with a specific classroom role. We’ll be highlighting and expanding these on our new website soon, and plan to add further equipping and training options there.
