Equipping selected teachers of the Georgia Baptist Convention Hispanic churches in best Bible teaching practices for children
Lucinda S Lyons
The purpose of this project was to equip selected teachers of the Georgia Baptist Convention Hispanic churches in best Bible teaching practices for children. First the project director researched the field to determine best practices for teaching theology to children, and then developed a curriculum. The project director presented the curriculum in an all-day training session. The training session included: (1) teaching methodologies based on Deuteronomy, (2) questions carefully worded to help children discover the Bible message, and (3) a model for discovering biblical truth, developed to help both the teacher and the students identify the doctrinal elements in the bible passage being studied and for creative, practical ways to apply the doctrine in daily life. An expert in biblical and theological studies reviewed the research and an annotated bibliography on which the curriculum was designed, and a curriculum expert approved the lesson plans. Rev. Tim Millwood, as field mentor, discussed the project prior to the implementation, attended the project implementation, and provided feedback on the project and its impact. The stages of the project development, results, evaluation, and reflection complete the project report.
