Christian educators fillmany roles in a variety of contexts. However, central to what we do is teaching, and usually within an organizational context. Whether it be a Sunday school class or a lecture hall in a Christian university, teaching is a fundamental foci of our ministry. Our profession is teaching. Regardless of everything else that our profession may entail and require of us, our profession is ultimately teaching. While we may teach students about the education ministry, or theorize about congregational education models; many of us serve in institutions of Christian higher education. This edition of the Christian Education Journal focuses its attention on the teaching profession within Christian seminaries and universities. The broad spectrum of articles comprising this edition is representative of the breadth of the professorate, and the issues that continue to shape our profession.
