“Making Every Church Member a Disciple through the effective Teaching of the Word of God”
The Assemblies of God, Ghana adopted the American pattern of the Sunday school through the missionaries. Madam Scott and Rev. Opuni helped to promote the Sunday School in Ghana. A/G Ghana adopted the U.S. curriculum but the church is currently developing its own curriculum.
The main objective of the Sunday School is to teach the members to be well established and rooted in the Word of God, so that they will not be swayed by any false doctrine. It is also to serve as a source of encouragement for the members to study and have effective fellowship with one another. As the members get to know the Word of God, and are well established and rooted in it, they then develop the desire to reach out to the lost and perishing. Another objective of the Sunday School is, therefore, to serve as a medium of evangelism.
The Sunday school is an essential disciple-making strategy for the church through the effective teaching of biblical principles for Godly living and ministry. These teachings are presented systematically after a set curriculum by spiritually matured teachers. Sunday School is, therefore, an evangelistic, missions and a church growth strategy (building a healthy church).
