What are the physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual age level characteristics of those who have reached adulthood -- college and career students, young adults, middle aged adults, and older age adults? What are the implications for adult Bible teachers and others who work with this age bracket?
For each age grouping within this module you will find worksheets with characteristics and some suggested implications pertaining to physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual development to assess your teaching in light of these implications and determine steps you will take to improve, a one page listing of the characteristics without the suggested implications, and an introductory article which can stand alone or accompany the worksheets.
This resource is great for Directors of Adult Ministry, Sunday School Superintendents, Directors of Christian Education, and others responsible for training teachers at this age level.
