|Title: ||Dynamics of Christian Education from the Ghanaian Perspective: A Study of the Christian Education Ministry of Some Selected Churches in the Kumasi Metropolis|
|Authors: ||Fosu, Mary (Rev). Mrs.|
|Issue Date: ||21-May-2012|
|Abstract: ||The gap between Christian profession and Christian practice among many African Christians is probably because Christian education lags much behind Christian theology in Africa. Much work has been done by some practical Christian theologians to look at the subject of Christian education, especially in the European and American contexts, but relatively little work has been done on Christian education in Ghana. There is therefore little theoretical framework for Christian Education in Africa. As a result, much of the Christian educational formulations in relation to the local church in Ghana are not being effectively communicated to the church’s educational facilitators.
This study is an attempt to describe and evaluate the Christian educational ministries of the local churches in the Ghanaian ecclesiastical context for effective communication of the Christian faith for relevant educational impacts. Dynamics of effective teaching and learning are described in terms agreeable to the abundant literature on Christian education. At the end, some recommendations are made for a possible formulation of a contextualized theology of Christian education suitable for the Africa context.|
