“Do your best to present yourself to God…”
2 Timothy 2:15
Christian Education seeks to provide a wide variety of educational programs throughout the year that assist the ministry in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ – as delivered by the Apostles.
The purpose of the GETG Christian Education Department is to Educate, Enlighten, Encourage, and Empower God’s people with an engaging variety of Christian educational programs throughout the year that assist the Church in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ – as delivered by the Apostles – in support of the work of the ministry “For the perfecting of the saints, … for the edifying of the body of Christ.”
The Mission of the GETG Christian Education Department is to remain relevant in presenting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior to all through education and the use of traditional and innovative teaching methods that create engaging and enlightening learning experiences for all age groups to grow in the Apostolic doctrine and leave the learning experience empowered to share their faith with scripture – as the result of a thoroughly examined biblical foundation. We also endeavor to support the Mission of our parent bodies – The International Christian Education Association (ICEA) and the North Carolina State Council, Inc. Christian Education Auxiliary in our efforts. To fulfill this mission the Christian Education Auxiliary offers the following programs and events:
