Christian Education Department

Director: Bernadette Ballard-Reid

The Christian Education department exists to equip the church for the work of ministry through the support of Christian Education ministries, administration of Christian Education curriculum, by creating an environment that is conducive to learning and by inspiring spiritual growth through creating an understanding of maintaining a personal relationship with God through personal devotion in conjunction with the study of the Word of God. (Ephesians 4:12-16)

The Christian Education department consists of 5 ministries designed to edify mind, body and soul. These ministries include regularly scheduled learning and worship opportunities such as:

Spiritual Enrichment Hour: Available for all ages and levels, including classes designed specifically for New Disciples and those needing foundation building. Church school is held Sunday mornings from 9:00am - 9:45am.

Kingdom Couples: The Kingdom Couples ministry exists to assist in advancing the relationships of married and engaged couples with each other and God.

Health Ministry: Praying Hands for Health Ministry is a integral part of the mission of The Galilee Baptist Church. “Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God” (I Cor. 10:31). Health ministry is the gospel of Christ illustrated, the message of God practiced. Without it, the gospel witness is muted; it is merely a theory, an idea. 

The most important objective of health ministry is to help men and women reach their full potential, mentally, spiritually and physically. To reach full potential, health principles must be practiced. 

The more closely these principles are followed, the better health the person enjoys. The more active a church is in public health education, the more effective will be its public evangelism, for health is the most universal entering wedge.

(Word on Wednesday) WOW: WOW provides the opportunity to worship through song, a sermonette and participate in our Bible Study which is led by our Pastor. The subject of our Bible Study is based on topics from specific books from different authors. New books are studied on a quarterly basis. W.O.W takes place on Wednesdays from 6 - 7:30 pm.

New Disciples Ministry: New members are gifts from God who bring energy and excitement to the body of Christ. The Galilee Baptist Church new disciples are nurtured and trained in Christian doctrine and principles. They are equipped and empowered to share their spiritual gifts for discipleship and kingdom building, and encouraged toward full ministry participation and service to God and His people.

In addition to regularly scheduled worship opportunities, Christian Ed also offers various workshops designed for Kingdom building. These workshops take place throughout the year and are offered to the church and surrounding community.

Spiritual FormationThis ministry exists to enrich the lives of people (of all ages) through the effective teaching of the word of God in a relevant way that leads to the development of personal relationships with Jesus Christ through application of the word of God.
