Because the Personal Studies for New Christians (PSNC) educational program is radically different from the traditional lecture approach, ministries wishing to use the PSNC must have at least one teacher complete the PSNC Teacher Certification Training Course. This PSNC Teacher Training course is set up in a correspondence course format.
To get started, visit the Teen Challenge Online store to download the teacher training materials.
If your ministry does not have the text books and PSNC Teacher Training DVDs or CDs, and samples of all the PSNC student materials, you will need to purchase these from the Teen Challenge USA store.
Personal Studies for New Christians Teacher Certification Course items that are only available from Teen Challenge USA are: Audio CDs or Video DVDs, DVD Workbook, Set-up Procedures Manual, a complete set of the student PSNC materials, and Answer Keys: Student Test, Self-Test, and Final Test.
The Personal Studies for New Christians (PSNC) Teacher Certification Course is an essential for teachers working in the PSNC classroom! PSNC Teaching Certification is accomplished with the use of the PSNC certification downloadable training materials. In addition to completing all the downloadable materials, PSNC certified instructors must successfully complete the video DVD sessions with the corresponding workbook, or they must complete the audio CD series. Also required are three supplementary books: Teaching to Change Lives, by Howard Hendricks, Ph.D.; How to be a People Helper, by Gray Collins, Ph.D.; and Creative Bible Teaching, by Lawrence O. Richards and Gary J. Bredfeldt. These books may be purchased from Teen Challenge USA or another source.
All materials needed for this training course are available at Teen Challenge USA store.
These courses provide an individualized approach to discipleship training. Teachers work one-on-one with each student, who in turn works at their own pace through a series of Bible studies, character qualities, scripture memorization, and much more. All the studies focus on personal application today, helping new Christians discover practical ways of using these Biblical principles in their daily living.
Those wishing to use the PSNC discipleship materials are required to have at least one teacher complete the PSNC Teacher Certification course.
