The Topic of March’s newsletter is long due. It constitutes the
education of children in the churches. Leaders, such as pastors,
elders and teachers have one colossal responsibility. They have to be of
positive influence to their followers, especially the children. They are to be the
models to their followers because modeling provides them the archetypal example
of what is expected. "Ultimately, education and leadership shade into each other to
become almost inseparable…" (Page 1994, 116). Consequently, it is imperative
that church leaders will give to correct example to the children of the church by
being fervent students themselves. Besides, they must provide the opportunities
to them to begin their systematic study of the Bible from a very young age. This
newsletter will give a brief highlight of children education blessing the local church.
On March 22, we celebrated the
first anniversary of the signing
of the protocol with the MQC.
We achieved a lot. The renewed
protocol now includes all BA
degrees, and all undergraduate
certificates GU offers. With God’s
help, now, we have a strong
program to offer to the Maltese.
It is an honor for GIT’s students
that they are obtaining certificates
recognized, which are recognized
by the EQF and QF-EHEA in
about 50 countries.
A number of local churches are
emphasizing this principle and
are using GU materials. These
courses are available from kinder
up to grade six. Word of Life PH
Church, and Destiny Christian
Assembly in Malta are involved in
this program. The pictures above

The Sunday School Administrator,
an ex-member of GU church,
exported GU material to the
church. The Children are showing
their certificate for completing
different levels of the program.
If you send us an email on this address
email@example.com, we will
send you a free GU Study guide of your
choice from those introduced on our website
under 21st Century Discipleship.
Teaching the kids in Sunday
school is a privilege, a real fun
and exciting experience!
Though a bit demanding, kids get
bored pretty quick in Sunday
school when they could be
at home playing Wii or
Nintendo but with the materials
we are using to teach our kids, they just
can't be bored!!! It's so exciting to know that
these children are being taught in the ways
of the Lord, growing to love Jesus and
learning to walk in His footsteps. Yes, we do
a lot of preparation, a lot of patience, a lot
of love, and a lot of care, in teaching them
about our wonderful God.
The literature books are very interesting too,
easy to follow and does help us a lot in
teaching these kids, loads of exercises and
activities. The work book is also very good.
With this material it is very easy to
communicate God's word to the children.
The Bible says train up a child in the way he/she
should go and when they grow up they will not
depart from it (Proverbs 22:6). Therefore, it's our
responsibility at Destiny International Christian
Assembly to help train these children to grow in the
Word of Faith. That's why we find this material very
interesting compared to others we have used in the
past. It is easier for the kids to learn and memorise
the Scripture verses. Good material to have a strong
foundation for the church, family and to our larger
