Publisher's Description

How many Christian "school teachers" are fully familiar with God's biblical mandates for their vocation? School teachers inherently hold a powerful influence over students, for good or bad. This sobering reality should motivate all school administrators, especially in Christian schools, to ensure that their teachers are spiritually qualified. Academic qualifications for teachers are essential, but spiritual qualifications are critical for meeting the biblical goals of education. In fact, it is the spiritual motivation and qualification of teachers that should be the greatest area of concern during the process of selecting faculty members to serve in Christian schools. Veteran teacher and Christian counselor Hooper offers twenty-one defining principles that separate Christian teachers from those who are not Christian. Do today's school teachers make the grade? This book is a must read for all who aspire to serve God effectively in the school classroom. Duane Hooper is a school teacher, principal, ordained minister, and board certified Christian counselor. His ministry was providentially redirected from the pastorate to education in 1990 when he began serving as teacher at Bay Area Christian School in League City, Texas. While serving as teacher and junior high principal, his passion for Christian education intensified. Concerning the influence held by teachers, especially in light of Christ's love for children, Duane was burdened regarding the need for Christian teachers to model not just Spiritual fruit, but Christ's express love for children. Duane's love for students is manifested in his several nominations to Who's Who Among America's Teachers. With both masters and doctoral degreesin Christian education and a Ph.D. in Christian Counseling, Duane has an ardent passion to share what he believes to be a Bible-based vision for the ministries of Christian school teachers-whether serving in Christian or public schools.

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a 6th generation Texan and a Christian for forty-one years. Born in Center, Texas at the close of WWII in 1945. I had pastored for eight years before becoming involved in the full-time ministry of teaching school. My family (wife and children) and I have resided in the Houston area since 1989.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  After serving for many years as a teacher and principal with a Bible-centered Christian school and witnessing damaging attitudes and actions carried out by teachers, I became burdened concerning the need for Christian educators to commit to and faithfully follow God's biblically-based blueprint for teachers that is modeled by the Master Teacher Himself.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  This text is truly a must read for all who aspire to serve God effectively in the school classroom. The manuscript is intended to both encourage and challenge Christian teachers as they follow the biblical principles rooted in the teaching ministry of the Master Teacher, Christ Jesus the Lord.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  From the research and observations made during the completion of the work, I was enabled to see my own shortcomings regarding fulfilling the responsibilities of teaching biblically and effectively. I have become a much improved model for the Master Teacher's work.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  There is no doubt in my heart and mind that God, through His Word and Spirit, is the Primary inspiration and influence regarding motivation, empowerment, and guide in producing this text.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  This work is not intended solely for Christian school teachers, but is equally essential for administrators, staff, and parents of the students. Parents, who have entrusted their children to particular schools and teachers, should know the expectations of God for educators. They should be informed, thus equipped, to recognize in the teacher, a pattern harmonious with God's biblical blueprint.
