New every morning is your love, great God of light, and all day long you are working for good in the world. Stir up in us desire to serve you, to live peacefully with our neighbors and all your creation, and to devote each day to your Son, our Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

Convinced that the way we have prepared and trained Sunday school leaders is not achieving the results most churches desire, Carol Krau offers new insight in Keeping in Touch: Christian Formation and Teaching. This book, committed to the vital role that teaching plays in forming Christian disciples, describes the following five critical processes that are important to every teacher and small-group leader:

  • Keeping in touch with God
  • Keeping in touch with God's people
  • Keeping in touch with your experience
  • Keeping in touch with the world
  • Keeping in touch with teaching

Carol F. Krau is the director of Adult Formation and Discipleship for the General Board of Discipleship, Nashville, Tennessee. A diaconal minister in the Tennessee Conference, she provides resources and support for leaders of adult ministries. Before coming to the General Board, Carol served as director of Christian education in several local churches for 14 years. She is the author of Keeping in Touch and co-author of A Faithful Future (both Discipleship Resources, 1999); and the author of Guidelines for Leading Your Congregation: Church Council, 2001-2004 (Cokesbury, 2000).
