The Christian Educator’s Imagination

Journal Article (Journal Article)

This article describes six constitutive “senses” of the “Christian educator’s imagination.” These dispositions toward knowing, being, and doing characterize competent leadership in educational ministry. They include a sense for vocational empowerment, a sense for teaching and learning, a sense for seeking God’s presence; a sense for the contours of one’s own soul, a sense for “what makes persons’ tick, and a sense for institutional leadership. The author contends that scholars of Christian religious education should seek to cultivate these senses in their students. © 2012 The Religious Education Association.
