/ -- A new Sunday school curriculum offers a simple solution to combat the ever-present challenge of "volunteer burnout" in children's ministry.
DIG IN, Group Publishing's new digital curriculum, allows teachers to quickly tailor lessons to complement their natural teaching strengths and passions.
"In the past, most pre-packaged curriculums have assumed that one lesson plan fits every student and teacher," explains Group Publishing's Chief Creative Officer, Joani Schultz. "DIG IN believes churches know their teachers and kids best. So DIG IN allows teachers to customize lessons to fit their natural giftedness."
Using a powerful new online lesson-builder, DIG IN enables children's ministry teachers and directors to design unique lessons in just moments based on classroom format, age group, class duration, and individual teacher preferences.
When teachers are passionate about their lesson content, Schultz explained, children naturally benefit.
"Teachers who have a voice in shaping their lessons are more invested in those lessons," says Schultz. "They enjoy teaching more and feel more comfortable as they lead. They see greater response in children, and all that feeds a teacher's continued satisfaction with serving in children's ministry."
Schultz points to an online DIG IN demo (www.group.com/digin
) that allows visitors to try using the lesson-builder to design several Dig In lessons.
"We're getting great responses," says Schultz. "People tell me DIG IN will save them untold amounts of time and stress, and will make it easy to adapt lessons to their unique church needs."
The first DIG IN one-year program is titled 'Digging Into the Life of Jesus' with 'Digging Into the Bible in One Year' and 'Digging Into the Beginning' releasing next year.
Group Publishing has served as an innovative voice in the ever-transforming world of church ministry for the past 42-years. Groups stated mission is to 'Create experiences that help people grow in relationship with Jesus and each other.'
DIG IN releases on Wednesday, June 1st with a special early bird offer currently available.
