Although I am in general agreement that the responsibility of an elder is to preach the Word. I am sure you would agree that a good Catechism can be a valuable tool would you not? If that is the case, would your problem be teaching a Catechism in a formal worship service such as Sunday night?
I am reminded of what CH Spurgeon said concerning a good Catechism.
Quote
I am persuaded that the use of a good Catechism in all our families will be a great safeguard against the increasing errors of the times, and therefore I have compiled this little manual from the Westminster Assembly's and Baptist Catechisms, for the use of my own church and congregation. Those who use it in their families or classes must labour to explain the sense; but the words should be carefully learned by heart, for they will be understood better as years pass.
May the Lord bless my dear friends and their families evermore, is the prayer of their loving Pastor.
C. H. Spurgeon
