The Evangelical Methodist Church has demonstrated from its inception in 1946 an awareness that the education of her "children'' was important. Through affiliation with selected institutions of higher education, through a continuing interest in quality Sunday School curriculum, and an awareness of the important role of the Christian home the denomination has evidenced concern for a qualifying Christian Education ministry. Her purpose for existence as a denomination would be defeated if she fails to teach the basic principles concerning man's relationship with God. It is time for the Evangelical Methodist Church to take vigorous steps to develop her potential in Christian Education in order to be prepared for the years of crisis and opportunity that lie ahead.
