The purpose of this study was to investigate the present importance and examine the potential values of the Sunday school workers' conference as a major technique used for general in-service training of Sunday school personnel.
Secular education is constantly striving to improve its academic standards. Christian education is becoming more aware of the need to improve its standards, but still there are areas of training whose resources have been barely tapped.
The work of Sunday school is maintaining by lay members who voluntarily give of their time and effort for the cause of Christ and the church. Many of these lay members have had little or not raining in teaching techniques or principles basic to teaching. God has blessed the work of these willing and dedicated workers with a measure of success. However, the church needs to recognize the fact that if these same workers would have had the privilege of proper Christian educational training, a more extended work could have been achieved in the school.
