The Romans Road for Children Course
The Romans Road is a method of presenting the message of salvation that has been successfully used for many years to lead people to Christ. In this course, students will learn how to use this method to share the Gospel in a simplified way with children. Through lectures, online class interaction, demonstrations and practice, students will gain confidence in their ability to share the truths of the Gospel using the Romans Road. Practical experience will be gained through using this tool with children, enabling students to effectively lead children to Christ.
Course Requirements: Although this course is not for credit, it includes weekly activities that the student must complete in order to receive a certificate of completion. Students should ensure that they can meet the requirements before they enroll in this course.
- Video Lectures - Course content will be delivered through video presentations. Time will be needed during the week to listen to each one.
- Forum Discussions - Forum discussions will take place each week during the course. This is a key element of the online course that allows students and the online instructor to interact with the course material and with each other about the content.
Practical Teaching Experience - In order to implement the teaching methods learned in this course, a practical teaching experience is required in week three. After downloading and assembling a Romans Road visual, the student should present the Romans Road teaching to either an individual child or a group of children.
