Some of the important tasks that boards fulfil include:

  • securing funding and prayer support from local churches
  • liaising with school management to ensure quality, professional SRE is delivered in a supportive school environment
  • increasing the donor base to help grow SRE ministry in local schools
  • finding, equipping and training godly and gospel-focused SRE teachers with the help of Generate Ministries
  • utilising the gifts and resources available from each partner church
  • developing a culture of personal and corporate prayer among supporters
