Vital Adult Learning is a practical handbook for church leaders who want to revitalize and dramatically expand their adult education ministry. Wade Paschal begins with a careful analysis of the characteristics and needs of adult learners. He then helps the reader: identify distinct "personalities" of classes; recruit and train teachers; adapt or create curriculum resources; and provide appropriate space and equipment.
Special attention is given to the needs of single adults, the needs of smaller churches, and the role of small groups. A final chapter on troubleshooting helps leaders anticipate and solve common problems in adult education programs.
