The Christian high school’s central distinctive and focus should be the discipling of young believers through teacher-to-student ministry. Such ministry is its primary function as an arm of the Body of Christ and in fulfillment of biblical mandates. This project discusses the roles and needed qualifications of the educators involved in this ministry; it examines the perceptions of students, parents, teachers, and administrators regarding such ministry; and it suggests practical measures that will help schools to prioritize the work of teacher-to-student ministry and to select and nurture the teachers who can fulfill its tremendous potential.
