Small congregations struggle with recruiting and holding on to Bible (or Sunday School) class teachers. Not just any adult can be a teacher, but one who is and, ideally, has been a Christian for a while. Certainly one who has been a Christian for a while should be in position to teach. It appears, unfortunately, that some adults would rather do nothing but be taught in a Bible class, perhaps even contributing in the Bible class via group discussion. This has both a positive and a negative quality associated with it; the positive that comes from this is the sitting in Bible class and gaining a good deal of Bible education, but the negative is sitting is Bible class as our children struggle with even having a teacher. Sometimes, the only Bible education a child gets is in the boundaries of a church building because of one devoted to teaching children.
