McCoy, William C.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Edgewood College
The purpose of this study was to ascertain the methodological training needs of adult Sunday School teachers in the Church of God in Christ. Pastors and instructional leaders of two Wisconsin jurisdictions were utilized as participants in the study. Research methodology included a blended approach of quantitative and qualitative methods with the use of a Likert-scale survey, short answer questions and an interview. One basic finding of the research indicated that the Church of God in Christ has various trainings already in place that deal with a number of areas in ministry, including Sunday School. Another basic finding was that there is a need for systematic methodological training for its adult Sunday School instructors to maximize instructional effectiveness. The main conclusion of the study was to begin systematic training of adult Sunday School teachers in the area of methodology. An additional conclusion reflects upon the broader experience of this research to influence denominations and religious organizations outside of the Church of God in Christ. In essence, the applicability and usefulness of this research spans across denominational divides. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
