6 And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. 7 You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise.

Deuteronomy 6:6-7, ESV 

Formation in the faith precedes, supersedes, surrounds, and encompasses information. - Norma Cook Everist


Christian Education at Zion

In a pluralistic and often antagonistic world that militates against the Word of God, our Christian education vocation is driven by the vision and voice of God who calls us use an array of learning styles to reach the world for Jesus Christ.

Strategic Methodology

Through the seven learning styles of visual, vocal, aural, logical, social,  solitary and logical means we sow seed of Christian education in the world to reap the harvest of Christian discipleship and victorious living among the Body of Christ.

The Scope of Christian Education

Christian education does not operate in isolation at Zion.  Christian education is the connecting chord of all that we do including but is not limited:

  • Church administration
  •  Proclamation
  •  In-reach through congregational care
  •  Up-reach to God through praise and worship
  •  Outreach to the world through missions and evangelism 


Learning Community

We are a learning community of proponents and practioners  of the learned Word of God who seek to live to the glory of God! 

Our Core Christian Education Learning Objectives:

  • Explore the Word of God
  • Challenge new thinking and new ways of social and spiritual relational being
  • Encourage meditation
  •  Provide inspiration
  • Social and spiritual transformation through mutual accountability
