dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to understand and describe the various teaching methods and contents adopted by teachers of the JABEZ Children's Ministry, and how these two contribute toward the spiritual development of the children in NEGST's Children's Ministry. The findings of the study were revealing and useful in helping teachers evaluate their role in the spiritual well being of the children they teach. The following were some of the findings of the study. • All teachers agreed that the sole aim of teaching was to help nurture the children into a greater understanding of God, His word and His expectations for their lives. • The need for a better understanding and application of other methods of teaching was identified • All teachers agreed that the complete Bible needed to be taught to the children for better and complete understanding of God's word and his expectations for the children's lives • In order to ensure continuance in spiritual nurture of children, there needed to be some kind of follow up or interest on the part of the parents when the children got home. • Teaching within the four walls of the classroom was not the only means through which the children learned, but teachers needed to be aware of their personal life style and the importance of that aspect to teaching and nurturing children. From the findings recommendations were made to help teachers regarding how they can make their teaching more effective and useful to their learners. This study gave a little idea on the importance of applying the appropriate methods and contents to teaching that would help impact the life of the learner, in this case, children in NEGST's children's ministry. en_US
