KidZ At Heart Training was done at the Eikenhof Lifechange Centre on the 26 & 27 October 2011. Here’s some feedback from the candidates.
The way I think about children’s ministry has changed completely. I realize now that teaching learners can be interesting and enjoyable! I especially enjoyed the teaching on how to lead a child to Christ.
- Mabasa Butana, Limpopo, RSA
I have learned that children learn in different ways and from now on my lessons will be more interactive and creative.
- Nicia Cebo, Centurion, RSA
I have learned that the Bible can be brought to life using simple and creative methods. My thinking about children’s ministry has been refreshed!
- Romela Narain, Lenasia, RSA
I have learned that teaching children does not have to be formal and strict. There are so many things we can do in order to grow our kids and our ministry. I will apply what I have learned at church and in my personal life.
- Lovanya Moodley, Randburg, RSA
If you make the lessons exciting the children will be more involved and the stories will stay with them forever.
- Wendy Dorasamy, Lenasia, RSA
I wish my Sunday School lessons were like this when I was growing up!
- Rev Louis Scheepers, Springs, RSA
I have learned to involve all the children in every lesson and that I as a teacher have a very big responsibility.
- Carol Steenkamp, RSA
I have always thought that dealing with children means to be strict and that I should do all the talking. Instead I have learned kids need participation, love, care and attention.
- Mary Gwebu, RSA
I have learned how important it is to have only one key point in a lesson.
- Elizabeth Browne
The L.E.A.R.N. rocks my world! Now I know how to prepare and present lessons better so that kids can get to know Jesus better.
- Thandi Nkwanyana, Lenasia, RSA
Every lesson presentation was great and I believe that every children’s church leader will benefit from this training. I cannot wait to go and apply what I have learned!
- Raksha Khan, Johannesburg, RSA
We got to experience the lessons as if we were the children. Let’s say I have “unlearned” the fact that I should always be doing the talking as a teacher. I will definitely involve all my kids from now on! This training has given me so much empowerment and encouragement, it taught me to give my best in every lesson and and at home.
- Cindy Padayechee, Leanasia, RSA
Doing this training has boosted my confidence.
- Nadia Cebo, Centurion, RSA
The KidZ At Heart training has broadened my understanding of how kids can be taught God’s Word. I want all our Sunday school teachers to do it too!
- Lorna Masaba, Limpopo, RSA
I enjoyed the session on prayer the most. I am definitely going to implement this!
- Ntombifuthi Kheswa, RSA
I have been given tools that I can use with children and with teenagers!
- Gavin Meyers, RSA
