Christian Education is a part of God’s purpose to put everything in Creation under the feet of Christ; it serves as part of His purpose to subdue people from all nations to the glory of God. I also think a Christian Education is a better education, because it feed the soul as well as the mind. It addresses the whole human being; it involves the body, sprit and the mind. One important goal of Christian Education is to teach the student to reason biblically. If each adult person or the parents of younger student took it upon themselves to be more Christ-like and build their foundation of education to glorify God, they would choose the Christian Education over the Public Education, which is controlled by the state.
In addition, in the ministries process, the members of the church should be embracing and participating in the ministries process, and able to internalize the process. Furthermore, called to build lives (Ephesians 4:11-12), and building the body of Christ can be an ongoing process (1 Peter 2:5; Ephesians 2:22). Rainer and Geiger say “ministry needs a clear ministry blueprint." Further, the authors view the process as the essential for the purpose of organizations because, the process that makes it work. The book continues to explain that a simple church can be a congregation’s designs around straight, and forward as well strategies process that move the people through the stage to grow
Discipleship in today’s world can be in the form of a Christian counseling. Christian counseling is counseling or psychotherapy grounded in the Christian faith. Christian counselors integrate the core beliefs of the word of God into services offer to patients. They see the bible as the source of truth. They understand the bible is the final authority.
All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the servant of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work"(NIV, 2010). Using this Scripture, Dr. Adams provided four –step biblical process that are the elements in the process of change. The first step is teaching the truth of the Bible, which is the Word of God. The counselor must teach the client what God has to say about the situation and what His standards are for living. This teaching involves what Adams calls “teaching in the milieu” or through real life situations.
Adams believes that once the patient is corrected, they then need to be discipled and trained in righteousness. These are Adam’s four stages of counseling (Adams, 1986). Adams basis his entire approach to counseling on the scripture 2 Timothy 3:14-17 “14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” Adams states that the only way man can truly change is to have his heart changed through God’s Holy Spirit. Adams believes that man can make adjustments to his exterior, but he is unable to make any changes to his interior (heart, mind, emotions) (Adams, 1986).

Biblical studies assignment – the great commission, Matthew 28: 16-20. The great commission and Christian youth ministry are two things that go hand in hand with each other, whether you are in a church setting discipling young people directly through the gospel, or based in Schools and communities living out how you live as a disciple of Christ and mentoring young people to be the best that they possibly can be. In Matthew 28 Jesus tells the 11 disciples to “go and make disciples of all nations,” and as youth workers we believe our calling is to bring young people into the kingdom of God. The great commission is written in narrative form, as though it was an eye witness account of what happened on the mountain. Matthews account differs greatly from Mark and Luke’s.
A. What is meant by “the call of God”? How can you know if you have received the call of God? The call of God is the term used to describe our response to the prompting of God to go into ministry with Him. Each one of us is called by God and the basis of that calling is set out in Matthew 28:19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” We can see clearly from Matthew 28:19 that each of us who have been born again, water baptised and filled with the Holy Spirit have a direct and unmistakable calling from God to serve Him in ministry.
It is about ‘being called to build communities of unconditional love and service modelled on Jesus’ spirit of sacrifice’. Basically, the message of the Catholic church is taught and displayed to children by examining the many miracles and good deeds Jesus performed throughout his time on earth. It shows the children what it means to be a human being and how to live the way Jesus wanted them to. The Alive-O books are filled with the many examples of Jesus’ sacrifices and good will on earth, and this acts as an example to the children as to how they should act. The next principal that is distinctive to Catholic education is the evangelisation and education is interlinked.
Stewardship is the product of one’s new worldview that is brought about by one’s conversion. For example, how to most effectively use one’s opportunities, how one works and why, what one think and does, promoting the Gospel, living as a slave to righteous, and being a living sacrifice (Miller, n.d). Everything one has, including time, assets, effort, works, mental and physical abilities, etc. belongs to God and one is to skillfully manage it; for God’s glory and not for one’s lustful cravings. Stewards are to be trustworthy (Holy Bible, NIV, l Cor 10:26).
