Session 1 – Get REAL with Ministry
Explore a Biblical model of ministry that takes seriously the need to build relationships, teach the Bible, model the gospel and see young lives radically changed by the power of God’s Word and His Spirit.
Session 2 – Get REAL with Children’s Development
Children are not simply mini-adults! They’re in the process of developing into adults and they therefore have rapidly changing abilities. If they are going to be taught effectively these abilities must be taken into account. Explore the differences between children and adults so that you can adapt your teaching style to hit the spot – every time! This session deals with the intellectual, emotional and physical development of children.
Session 3 – Get REAL with Child Spirituality
Teaching the Bible to children is not an academic exercise – it’s a spiritual endeavour. This session explores child spiritually and answers questions like: Who is responsible for the spiritual nurture of children? How do children come to faith and grow in their understanding of the gospel? What does age-appropriate repentance look like?
Session 4 – Get REAL with the Heart
Take your teaching beyond passing on facts, appeal to the heart. See real life-change when you apply God’s word, in an age-appropriate way, to the lives of those you teach.
