The Joshua students from MES joined us once again – this time for training in LESSON PLANNING and ASKING GREAT QUESTIONS. We would like to share their comments:
I realised again that children need to be a part of the lesson. I also learned how important it is to prepare well for each lesson.
Asking the right question during a lesson is very important – it tests the children’s understanding and helps them think about what they have learned.
It is important to simplify lessons to the level of the specific age group that you work with.
I enjoyed presenting the Bible story, because I love teaching children.
I learned that in children’s ministry you need to consider all the children when preparing a lesson and you should always prepare well.
I enjoyed everything, but especially presenting a lesson to the other groups.

I never realised before how important it is to ask meaningful questions during a lesson!
I remembered the lessons we presented to each other better because of the way it was presented: I can trust God always because He will help me in difficult situations to overcome! I will remember this during the year when I go through hard times.
The way I think about kids has changed. I always thought of children’s ministry as serious and boring. Now I will be able to present lessons differently and teach the Word of God differently.
Application and one key point = very important!
