The Transformation Model Teacher - INSPIRE- You are not here to give people your notes, but to give them your life. To be inspiring to others, you must find what inspires you. Identify with them. Value them [include, believe, challenge]. People need your influence, that will not come when you are lip-singing the mantra of others, you must own your own message by embodying it fully. INVEST- Teaching occurs in community. Teaching requires us maintaining a posture in the presence of God. Teaching is a lifestyle. God does not give us His spirit merely so we may serve ourselves, it gives us the ability [or power] to lay our lives down. INFORM- Avoid using general assumption regarding biblical knowledge. Study history and culture relating to your teaching context. Make disciples who are founded on Christ-centered truth [not the gospel of Evan]. We are called to rightly divide the word of truth [John 1:17], which begs a proper hermeneutical approach in study. Asks: “What do I want them to know?” “What do I want them to feel?” “What do I want them to do?” Transformation engages all of the senses. Information without application is an abortion of truth. Learner - This is a non-negotiable discipline you must commit to in this life. Every spiritual leader must invest in lifelong learning. Five levels of learning: What bible knowledge is needed [Hosea 4:6]? What perspectives do the people need to develope [1 Cor. 2:14]? What convictions do they need to develop? What skills [Ecc. 10:10]? What character qualities need to be formed in our lives [Eph. 4:18]? Content - We cannot teach what we are not in the process of becoming. A prophet is interested in building someone up. Prophets point out where sin exists and point to how change may occur. Prophets spoke within their community, so to we are challenged to be incarnate within whichever cultural prison we find ourselves invading. Consider what it might be like to have an outsider come into your life and tell you how you must relate to God. You would resist them feeling they could not relate to your situation. Read the Book of Amos in the OT. You must be the message you want to deliver.

Delivery- All communication had three essential components: the intellectual, the emotional, and the volitional. In other words, when we try to communicate, we must include: Thought: something we know Emotion: something we feel Action: something we do Something I know but I do not feel, my communication is dispassionate. Something I know but do not do, my communication is theoretical. Something I feel but do not know, my communication is unfounded Something I feel, but do not do, my communication is hypocritical. Something I do but do not know, my communication is presumptuous.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
