PART 1 – Design and Maintenance of Christian Education Curriculum Birth thru Grade 12: Relying heavily upon key-quality volunteers, the Curriculum Director will oversee the design of the curriculums and teaching, sharing Christ with children birth thru grade 12. The resulting curriculums and teachings should be exciting, well thought-out, age appropriate, Christ-centered, biblically informed, and well rounded, eventually bringing children to Christ “head, heart, and hands” with appropriate emphasis upon biblical literacy, spiritual disciplines, and outreach (see Surrender Together Love paradigm). They will be heavily supported by musical, theatrical, and electronic arts which will be the responsibility of the Program Director.
