Every church needs a dynamic and inviting children’s program. A strong children’s ministry program leads to church growth – it’s true! When children come to church and discover that they are loved and that learning about Jesus is fun, they will bring their friends and their parents as well!
OC Africa offers Sunday School teachers the vision and essential tools to develop and enhance their children’s ministry program. We believe that the call to teach children is sacred. In Mark 10:13, Jesus tells us to bring the children to Him! Studies in evangelism show that most people come to Christ as children or as youths. Sunday School is our opportunity to invite children into a relationship with Jesus Christ and grow that relationship throughout their lives.
OC Africa facilitates one day and two day Sunday School Seminars which address a variety of helpful topics for Sunday School educators. We will travel to your area and train the children's leaders from your church and others in children's work from your community.
By the end of the seminar you will understand:
The values that make a good Sunday School program
How children learn
How to promote effective discipline in your class
Creative lesson presentation ideas
How to make a variety of puppets and crafts
How to help children memorise the Bible
Fun ideas for drama, games and music
How to prepare and plan a Sunday School lesson
How to present the Gospel to children
Participants will be invited to engage in hands-on activities throughout the workshop. Drama, craft creation, lesson planning and Scripture memorisation are just some of the tasks that participants will enjoy.
Upon completion of the Sunday School course, participants will have a training manual, a one year comprehensive Sunday School Curriculum and certificate of completion in hand.
