Welcome to My SundayResources Blog

I’m Neil MacQueen, a Presbyterian minister. I created this blog to share my experience, knowledge, …and occasionally bold & ridiculous ideas related to Christian education, needs & problems in the church, and church tech topics. I’ve been working in and with churches and church staffs for 28+ yrs, done some writing & speaking, and been engaged in some inventive ministry efforts along the way.  Most people know me from my work with Sunday Software and the Workshop Rotation Model for Sunday School.  Both of these ministries grew out of my dissatisfaction with the “same old approaches = same old results.” (See more “about me” below…)

Here are a few of my latest posts:
