Description

This capstone focuses on the Episcopal Diocese of Liberia. The faith formation of children has not been a priority in many churches within the diocese of over 30 years. Inadequate attention has been paid to the resources used or the modes of training teachers. Too many children and youth gravitate to other denominations because they do not experience meaningful and relevant teachings to their faith development in the Episcopal Church. Without updated strategies for renewed ministry to children, their faith foundation will be diminished, and the church's growth will continue to be hampered. The growing needs for adequate children's faith formation is crucial for the growth of the church. Identifying specific programs that cater to children's learning and development goals in the church requires planning, training, and implementation. This project seeks to further discuss the historical context of the Episcopal Diocese of Liberia in chapter one. In chapter two, the author will explore the biblical and theological foundation for faith formation, followed by proposing a contextually appropriate curriculum for children in the Episcopal Diocese of Liberia in chapter three.
