Abstract
The purpose of this research was to identify whether the intentional missional training of pre-school children would result in the parents noticing a positive and influential change within their child. This exploratory study utilized qualitative and quantitative measures to examine perceptions and evaluations of faith formation curriculum. Identical pre- and post-study surveys using the Lijert scale were distributed to accurately trace parental perceptions regarding explicit growth during the use of the new curriculum. The findings show that missional faith formation curriculum achieved greater effectiveness when juxtaposed tot he traditional approach of teaching Bible stories and lessons.
