In its broadest sense, curriculum is the whole of the plan for education and formation. The overarching educational and nurturing plan of all that you intend to do to inform, form, and transform people of all ages as Christian disciples is your curriculum. The particular books, study materials, videos, activities, and so forth that you choose to use as tools to accomplish your plan are the curriculum resources. We often use the shorthand term curriculum to refer to the specific resources. These resources are basic tools for Christian education and formation, and we encourage you to use them.
