"...and He Himself gave some to be ...pastors and teachers for the equipping of the saints..."  (Ephesians 4:11,12 NKJV)

  5. Consults / Coaching
    Some churches need a personal consult for general or specific areas of their Sunday School or Home Group ministry. Let us know your needs. Others might need some longer term coaching help.
  6. Space Walks
    If you are having space problems or not utilizing your current space to its maximum, we would be happy to take a look and make suggestions.


Sunday School/Small Group Trainers was developed with the idea of bringing the most skilled and gifted age-graded leaders together to provide custom designed training for any size church. All these practitioners have served local churches and are available to share their experience with your Sunday School and/or Small Group leaders.

Allow us to put together a team for you, we will explore your needs and assemble the best team possible to meet those needs. Nothing would please me more than to work with you and your small group leaders.

I’ve involved in Christian Education since 1984, written numerous articles and training pieces related to Sunday School and Home Group ministries, some of which have been published in books, magazines, and on-line.

God has allowed me to lead the Christian Education ministries for churches in Kentucky, Washington, and Alabama.

Dwight Moss
Trainer for General Leaders, Adult Leaders, and Home Group Leaders

Coaching and Consultations
​I’ve also had the wonderful opportunity to lead workshops and conferences for churches, state conventions, and other organizations in Tennessee, Alabama, Kentucky, Mississippi, Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, West Virginia, Ohio, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Oregon, Washington, Wisconsin, and Montana, in addition to groups in Ukraine, India, Nepal, and Honduras.

I’ve had the privilege to lead LifeWay core conference for Sunday School directors numerous times at Ridgecrest Conference Center near Asheville, North Carolina, Green Lake Conference Center in Green Lake, Wisconsin and Glorietta Conference Center at Glorietta, New Mexico. I’ve been on two training tours with LifeWay in Mississippi and the Pacific Northwest as a Ministry Multiplier.

Consultations and Coaching

If you’d like to discuss bringing me to your location, you can contact me via email at [email protected] or click the link at the end of this page. We can begin a conversation about creating an event or series of events for your leaders. If you need age-graded leaders for a full age-graded event, I can take care of enlisting those leaders for you, too.

Training isn’t an expense – it’s an investment in the future.
Your people are your greatest asset. You’ll never go wrong investing in training for your leaders.  Because workshops can include a large number of people, the costs associated with travel and honorarium make on-site training an affordable per-person investment.

Consider partnering with other churches or groups in your area to make training even more affordable. You might host a conference and invite other churches to participate, charging participants a small fee. Chances are, you’ll recover most, if not all, of your costs. Plus a small participants’ fee creates greater buy-in on the part of churches and individuals.
Typical costs associated with a training event-
·        Mileage or airfare
·        Meals while traveling
·        Hotel accommodations
·        Fees based on services and size of church

Your church might benefit from someone from the outside coming in to provide an assessment of your education ministry and guide you in avoiding some pitfalls through a short consultation.
If you need bigger picture assistance or longer-term help, a coaching relationship may be the better way to go.
You may need an interim minister of education during a staff vacancy; I can provide you with that transitional leadership.
"'Thank you!' for a great conference Sunday evening. I’ve received numerous texts and comments from Sunday School leaders expressing how much they enjoyed your presentation and appreciated the content. You hit a home run, my friend!"  Dr. John Johnston, Minister of Education/Administration, First Baptist Church, Prattville, AL
“You want to talk about a man who has been true to his calling...Dwight has been and still is. I would put Dwight near the top of all the Christian educators I have known....side by side with Allan Taylor.” Todd Panter, NAMB Church Strengthener
​​“I consider it a great compliment to side beside Dwight Moss! I totally agree with your thoughts on this great Christian educator.” Allan Taylor, Director, Church Education Ministry at LifeWay Christian Resources & Former Minister of Education at First Baptist Church Woodstock, Ga.

"Dwight has served extremely effectively as a minister of education. He has a strong commitment to the fundamentals, building strong Sunday Schools, and especially in training and equipping leaders. He also has a background of serving as a Sunday School Director before he entered the ministry. He has led lots of conferences for LifeWay over the years.”  Wayne Poling, pastor of administration and education Highland Baptist Church, Redmond, Oregon  & former Lead Speicalist for LifeWay Church Resources

Getting a Correct Start Out of the Block
for 21st Century Sunday School Leaders
Flip This Sunday School
Just as a race can be won or lost in how a runner gets out of the starting blocks, a Sunday School leader can set the pattern for a lifetime with either good habits or bad ones.   It is imperative that he starts right in order to be the best leader he can be.
These four lessons on DVD were taught by Dwight Moss to his Sunday School leaders at the first Sunday School Summit at Decatur Baptist Church where Dwight serves as Christian Education Pastor.
The *lessons include:
-What is Sunday School?  (DVD 1)
-“Whatever It Takes” versus “Whatever”   (DVD 2)

 -A Charge and Challenge-Senior Pastor Doug Ripley (CD)

Cost................................................... $20 plus $4 shipping
In house “flipping,” some houses need only some paint and light repairs while others need a complete renovation down to the foundation.  Sunday School is much like that; some Sunday School classes need only to be reminded of the basics while others must start from the beginning and change most everything they do.  Flip This Sunday School is a series of looking at the basics in a fresh way. 
The CD *lessons include:
-Sunday School Is…  (CD 1)

 Biblical Principles for Growing

 New and Potential
Leader Training
