I came to know Christ as my personal savior in recruit training (Boot Camp) in the U.S. Navy in 1960. I served in the Navy for 9 years as an Aviation Electronics Technician during which time I grew in the Lord and serve him in a variety of areas including pastoring a church in Hawaii. After leaving the Navy, I served in various churches as pastor and Christian Education director. I represented Gospel Light Publications as a consultant for 37 years, did consulting in churches, and taught in three bible colleges. I have a B.A., M.A., and Ph. D. I am the senior pastor of Agape Christ Commission Fellowship of Hayward and the Professor of Christian Education at Bay Cities Bible College in Oakland.

Christian Education: How to Get Your Sunday School Going and Growing?

I became the Sunday School superintendent of a small church where the teachers were often late to class, there was no attendance taken, no follow up of absentees, no unified curriculum (each teacher did what they wanted to do), no training, and no teacher's meetings. In just over two years, all teachers were on time, all were trained, we used the same publishers curriculum, held regular teacher's meetings, took attendance, and all teachers were doing systematic follow up. Since then, I have used these same concepts in church leadership and consulting. I will share how to do it.
