You could play an important role in mobilizing your community to be a blessing to Muslims!
A class that instills vision and tools to engage the Muslim world with the love of Christ requires a coordinator as one of the key ingredients, although this is not a job done alone. Gathering a team of additional volunteers is essential. Through Class Prep, EWI’s online planning guide, you and your team will be equipped to plan and carry out a successful class.
A coordinator must:
- Sign and return the Coordinator MOU.
- Complete the Class Prep planning modules at least three months before the start of class.
- Meet with leaders in your church to confirm their endorsement and to check for scheduling and room availability.
- Conduct ongoing meetings with the team. Provide leadership, build a team of volunteers, delegate responsibilities.
- With your team:
- Plan and implement a prayer strategy for your class.
- Promote the course within your host church and develop a community-wide promotional strategy. Ask your pastor(s) to give you a list of 10 people they would like to see attend EWI, and then have someone personally invite each person.
- Promote the course by visiting other area churches.
- Select, book, and confirm speakers for your class. Talk with other EWI coordinators and the EWI team to get suggestions for dynamic instructors for each lesson topic.
- Form a plan for recruitment, registration, worship, prayer, childcare, etc.
- Communicate regularly with your church and the EWI team.
