The TWELVE training curriculum has been revised and updated, including the addition of a new lesson on Partnering with Children. The curriculum is currently available in 8 languages with more translations underway. It is typically used as a 3 – 4 day training. But some have incorporated it into a Bible College course, while others have used the lessons as stand-alone training sessions.
“Ten years ago I was a Sunday School Teacher. I taught kids only out of love, but didn’t see it as discipleship. Children are like a hidden pearl. Often I get mad at my niece/nephew for their mistakes. Last night I cried, realizing they are a precious treasure. I want to go home and love them more.”
“In our denomination there are 65,000 children and 35,000 teachers. Thank God that through this training I’m equipped to have the heart to be a children’s minister to them, build bridges and strategy to reach them. Our target in 2018 is that all the children in all our churches would understand the gospel.”
“One of the lessons we teach focuses on Jesus’ teaching about welcoming children in Matthew 18:5, so we gave participants a homework assignment that night to go into the community practice and welcome children, following Jesus’ example. The next morning one young man stood up to testify, ‘Last night I went out and saw 5 older children. One was lying beside the street and looked sick. I felt compassion for them so I stopped and started talking to them. I invited them to come eat with me. Suddenly the 5 became 14, and eventually 23 children. After feeding them as best I could, I began to ask them about their families and beliefs. I asked them if they wanted to be on the street and they said, ‘No, but we don’t have parents who support us or help us.’ They said they believed in God, and they have dreams, but they are stuck on the street. I’m so grateful that I took the time to help them. I feel that this is something I need to be doing back in my community.’ I was so touched by this man’s holistic compassion for these street kids. Praise God that the lessons we teach are not just theory but that they are becoming reality in the lives of the people we train!”
