Help Me Teach the Bible: Dobbs and Stainback on Selecting and Training Good Teachers

Nancy Guthrie | September 8, 2016

In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I sat down with two good friends who have spent many years identifying, recruiting, training, and overseeing teachers in the church. I asked them what they look for in a teacher, red flags that may indicate one shouldn’t be tapped to teach, and how they recommend people improve at teaching the Bible.

Donna Dobbs is director of Christian education at First Presbyterian Church in Jackson, Mississippi. Kari Stainback is director of women’s ministries at Park Cities Presbyterian Church in Dallas, Texas.
