Rev.  Dr. Joseph Oniyama, Sr. Pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in East Orange hosted our first  L.I.B.S.TM workshop.  Assoc. Minister Robin Greene-Webb gathered many of Calvary's Christian Educators to lead the way. Several churches joined us from Asbury Park to Vaux Hall. Attendees included pastors, Sunday School Teachers, Youth leaders, and  Sunday School Superintendents. elaine-and-ginaOur primary tool was of course the Bible, but we also made use of accessible and low cost ways to augment our lessons so that all learners may participate. All attendees had the opportunity to prepare and share a mini Bible study and receive affirming feedback from their fellow Christian educators.
