How to start a Biblically-Based Educational Ministry.


Step
1

  Acquire Information

Contact your Representative for an information package. Allow yourself time (3-6 months, if possible) to prepare for God's ministry. Biblically-based education of the next generation needs your time and commitment.

 

Step
2

  Schedule Presentation

Schedule your Representative to call on your organization to present the program. Ask him questions about regulations in your state regarding; fire and health codes, faculty, facilities, curriculum, number of school days, number of hours per day, number of supervisors, etc.

 

Step
3

  Visit Local Model or Quality Status School

Ask your Representative to schedule a visit to a model or Quality Status School nearest you. You will want to see how a school operates and witness for yourself the philosophies and policies of a high-tech School of Tomorrow program.

 

Step
4

  Finalize Commitment

The leaders of your organization should seek the Lord's leading before finalizing a commitment in starting a Biblically-based educational ministry in your community. As God leads, sign and return the application with your setup fee.

 

Step

  Attend Administrators' Training

Confirm a training date for your Senior Pastor (Senior Administrator if non-church school) and Principal. This training will answer your questions about the HOW'S, WHAT'S, WHEN'S, and WHEREFORES. Training is a vital key to the success of your organization's educational ministry. Schedule training as soon as possible. Plan the opening of your school approximately 2-4 months after this full week of condensed crucial training. Your account number will be issued at Administrators' Training.

REMEMBER: Confirm a training reservation with the training department Your Representative can help you take care of this.

Make certain your facilities provide a Godly, professional atmosphere for your prospective students.

Implement the procedures learned at the Administrators' Training. Call your Representative and schedule a time for your supervisors to take their one week training at a convenient regional location. Build or buy student offices, scoring stations, and computer stations. Use the Furniture Section of the Administrators' Training to construct your classroom(s).
