In a report published by the nac.today website, on the occasion of Pentecost 2015, Chief Apostle Jean-Luc Schneider made an emphatic statement when he set some concrete targets for the Apostolate at the Pentecost Assembly in Lusaka (Zambia).
Spending most of the morning sharing insights on the education system and plans for Africa at the meeting, the Chief Apostle tasked the Apostles: “I ask you, my dear Apostles, to please make a priority of these tasks: instruct the ministers, and establish Sunday School for children in all congregations.”
This directive has certainly been headed to and being executed. In a recent and maiden meeting of National Heads of Seminars for West Africa in Accra, Lead Apostle Oppong-Brenya reiterated this objective in his welcome address. Indeed, the status of the Sunday School and Confirmation Class was also discussed.
Following up on this agenda, District Elders Oehler (Germany), Dinkelacker (Germany), Obama (Equitorial Guinea), Kgegasin (Nigeria) and Priest Salvador (Equitorial Guinea) accompanied Apostle Benjamin Ohene-Saffo to the Madina congregation which has one of the largest Sunday Schools in Accra (over 100 children) to witness at first-hand the progress and status of the education in the church. This visit was carried on 24th November 2019.
Also around the Accra Apostle Area, many Sunday Schools and Confirmation Classes are doing well and keenly monitored to achieve the Chief Apostle’s aim. Seminars and trainings for teachers are also regularly held to improve and standardize the quality of education delivered.
The Sunday Schools have also been involved in the country’s 50th anniversary celebrations in the various Apostle Areas.
